I thought only garnishments happened if it has gone through the court system and the case won or was granted.

Being military they can talk to you SO and get you in some serious trouble. Having outstanding debts that are in collections makes you a liability and shame to the military. You are also a risk if the "enemy" were to offer you a large cash bribe. It's also a matter of honor, if you have repeatedly made promises to pay and failed to follow through on your obligation. Article 134 of the UCMJ addresses dishonorably failing to pay debts and possible action faced:
Maximum punishment. Bad-conduct discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and confinement for 6 months.
