Verbs for Nouns

A popular refrain that one hears when talking about the troops is that they fight, kill, and get killed, maim and get maimed so that we can enjoy our freedom here at home. The troops make the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be free.

Does anyone with even a partially functioning frontal lobe and a sliver of conscience believe this bunk?
