Why am I coming to this possibly erroneous conclusion?
Steve never has to deal with the daily BS of military life. He never has to get his CAC replaced (dude, salt water will rust the unholy shit out of that microchip), he never gets his beer at the Class 6, he never swings into the commissary or the BX/PX/NEX (never been to any of the bases on Oahu, but I hear the NEX is a giant mall), hell, he never has to deal with Tricare and having seen the show... he definitely should be.
He essentially is completely devoid of the military lifestyle things that "we" go through... despite being military. And if you think becoming a reservist changes that, then clearly you've never actually talked to a real live SEAL. (Dear lord, the employee down the hall never shut up when H50 first came back out... Do not get a retired SEAL talking about a fictional SEAL!)
So, yeah, if anyone can point to fic where Steve actually interacts with his 'military life' in a way other than glorified and fictionalized combat, awesome, thank you.
