People don't talk enough how much Steve has lost. His father died in WWI, meaning he grew up fatherless in a time when it was much more difficult for a single mother to support and provide for herself an her child. When he was only 18 (and chronically ill himself) he lost his mother to a horrific disease. He saw the love of his life die horribly right in front him. He lost every person he'd ever known and woke up alone in a strange time. I feel like many ppl really gloss over Steve's trauma.
