They died for corporate wealth, and world domination. Maybe they were tricked into doing it, and maybe they thought they were dying for someone's freedom.
Second, to be clear, if anything, soldiers kill for freedom, they don't die for it. If all of the men invading on D-Day had "died for our freedom", what good would it have served ? When you try to kill someone, they may just try to kill you back. So there is a risk.
I'm not sure why you are buying into the soldiers as Jesus meme. It just isn't true.
