I don't think the master's degree is essential. Your standing as an officer and XO establishes your credentials as a manager. To get hired in games you'll need to have been intimately involved with the making of games. I don't think you'll be able to do that until after you're discharged (making games is a huge timesuck).
If you want to get a master's, go for whatever learning you can get (do it for the learning, not for the piece of paper).
