Equal access to healthcare should be the right of all people, not to the privileged.
Your Service Member example isn't really a good one, since the government is the employer in this case. In that sense, then the health coverage from my employer is a "single payer" system.

Also, my dad has government health care through the VA. His experience hasn't been that good, as he spends a ton of time just trying to get services. If the government can't even manage this single payer system on a small scale, they will fail miserably on a large scale.
