Not necessarily.
The Air National Guard/VA Hospital thing comes directly from the leaked script, so it isn't some rumor or speculation. The scene where Sam reveals this is where he and Cap meet for the very first time. So most likely, he *is* in the ANG, also working the VA, when he meets and befriends Steve, who then pulls some strings to get him hired on to SHIELD.
