Cover letters are the best way to express the reason to apply for a particular job or a position. Also if the job that you are applying for does not matches with the previous employment, then more details should be provided to the employer regarding a switch over of the job through the cover letter. If specific reason is not provided to the employer regarding the application for a job, then this may create a bad impression on the employer about the applicant.
The information provided in the naval resume cover letter should start with on how your naval experience was an advantage to the job if you were a Lieutenant, or a Commander or a Captain in navy. Following is a letter given to the employer to apply for the post of a naval officer as a Commander in chief.

Dear _ _ _ _ _ _ _,
I am working with the Indian military for the post of an assistant lieutenant. It was a great experience working under the guidance of the captain. I also received a 10 years naval training that helped me increase my confidence level and also a positive attitude that helps me to fight against any army without fear.
I have attached my certificates, the badges, and also the details of my experience as an assistant lieutenant along with my resume. I am eagerly waiting for your reply.
