The veteran shouldn't be so easily surpressed

So, surpression is a super annoying mechanic but i get why its there.
What i don’t get is why the veteran, literally a veteran, is so heavily affected by flashlights going off 10m infront of him.

He is a veteran. Hell, depending on your choices he might even be a cadian veteran who served his entire life, surely by now he got used to the gunfire happening around him?
Surely he shouldn’t have a stroke everytime someone coughs into his general direction?

I know there is a perk, but he should have some resistance against that stuff by default honestly.
