Having a soldier in the family tree in Sweden is good as that is a profession that in the Swedish society is well documented. Soldiers, priests and some other professions like blacksmiths are all well documented. There are special books like Soldatforska Lars Ericsson Wolke (eng. researching soldiers) that are good tutorials on how to proceed. You also have in Stockholm Krigsarkivet (eng. Military archive wiki)
Having a soldier in the family tree in Sweden can also be a problem, because soldiers were assigned new names when they enrolled, so it may not be easy to track them back to their parents.
