Because he survived falling from a great height without being crippled.

They don't. Let's start with the Soviets found him. They recognize he is an American soldier, offer him medical treatment, and through observation/running some tests they find out he has a healing factor/whatever.

Well, the commentary suggests that what Bucky has is a healing factor. It is something they could have missed if Bucky was never injured during his time in the Howling Commandos. And it is something that doesn't lend itself to being a propaganda hero like, say, super-strength would.

Also, Bucky is an America national. They flaunt him as a propaganda symbol, the US Army would take notice.

Did you like the Winter Soldier storyline in the comics, cherokeesam?
