You will be fine. Just make sure you can get out as soon as possible. Your projected hours with either option will be competitive for any major. Keep in mind that once hired you can take mil leave for new aircraft training and seasoning. You continue to accrue seniority and retirement funding while out on mil leave.

If you really want to increase your TT get your CFI/II/MEI via the military conversion with the FAA. Fly on the side as a CFI if there's a local airport.

The airlines have made exceptions for some people. Typically senior officers in non-flying jobs. Talked with an O-6, on the O-7 track, who rarely flies and won't have 100 hrs/year. Why? Because his value to the USAF is as a senior officer. The airlines, or at least some of them, understand that.

Yes, trend is now to hire O6+ without recency on the premise that they are half way decent pilots and good organizational players. At least a couple of the bigs are supposedly doing this.

If you don't have your ATP yet, get that. It's another item to check the box on.
