Specific Fic: Iron Man AU

Hi all, I'm looking for an Iron Man AU where Tony grew up in the foster system and joined the Army, where he was captured by the Ten Rings along with some of his unit. He built the arc reactor and Iron Man and then escaped much like he did in the movie, but met Rhodey when he was being interrogated(?) after being found by the Army and/or Air Force. It was a gen fic, and Tony met Pepper because she was in the army, too. Among other details of this fic, Tony completely revamped the trucks and weapons in his unit, no one who hadn't worked directly with him knew how to fix any of them; he tried really, really hard to get discharged, eventually stealing a nuclear weapon, getting court-martialed and dishonorably discharged, and spending a year in Leavenworth; after his release from prison he went to live with Pepper, who was still in the army; also, at the end of the fic he's recruited for SHIELD (or something like it) by Fury. I'm 95% sure I read it on AO3.
