If you are E-1 thru E-5 and using the Free or Deluxe online edition it is free to file if you have entered your military W-2.  The charge will be removed when you are reviewing your fees in the File section just before you file your tax return.

I did use my military W-2, but it never deducted the charges.

Did you indicate that you were active military in the My Info section of the program when entering your personal information?
Have you actually filed your tax return?  You would need to complete the File section Step 1, 2 and 3 and click on the large Orange button labeled "Transmit my returns now"
Did you pay the TurboTax account fees with a credit card?

I indicated that I was military in every possible spot. I already filed them and used the return deduction option.

Because any intelligent being would know not to put information like that on the internet for weirdos like you to see. Next.
