"Do you think his Navy pension and military health insurance were important factors in his early retirement success? "

Heck, yes...otherwise, he'd be paying $20,000 a year for an ObamaKare type policy with $15,000 deductible.....

and likely that pension is inflation adjusted for life.

If he got to a decent rank - probably did to survive 20 years in the military - he's taking home a decent military pension.

But he's still 'working' with his rehabs and rental houses.

We've had some nice bull markets, but you surely can't count of them for the next 40 years.

He retired at 41. He's got a 50-60 year horizon for his SWR. So far so good.....

Same for everybody who accumulated wealth through the 1990s to today.
