Any government position is generally better than civil, but nothing is for sure.  I spent 20 years military and 18 years county government, all flying.  Total pensions around 90K per year.  As another poster said, it allowed me to do tours and HAA as I desired, not as I needed.  But the big plus with government jobs is the medical in retirement.  Can't beat it.  

There is a downside.  Aviation units are costly, especially to small, local governments.  They are usually targeted first during times of budget reductions.  Also remember, you are always one medical away from a career change, so always have a plan B that doesn't involve actually flying.
