ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943
#this feels late for bucky to be enlisting #but that isn’t the issue
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”
According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”
A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.
There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.
Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?
Oh man, literally just last night I was wondering on IRC whether Bucky volunteered or was enlisted.
Here’s a scan of Steve’s rejection (the document was included in the Phase One box set). It does indeed show the current date as 14 June 1943, and his medical exam sheet says the same.
Another thing I’ve been pondering: Steve tells the recruiters that his dad was in the 107th and asks to be assigned to the same regiment. We later hear that Bucky’s been assigned to the 107th. So either Bucky was assigned to the same regiment as Steve’s dad by some extraordinary coincidence… or Steve is just saying his dad was in the 107th in an attempt to make sure he gets assigned to the same regiment Bucky was drafted into.
I will be deeply disappointed
