(I'm a bit confused about what to do here... Does the word's meaning have to be modified? Does the word I provide have to be from my conlang, or can it just be completely made up? For now, I'll use a word from Lurghinian.)

A bit of free association, perhaps, but this didn't seem a [o.O] -worthy big reach to me. They "lay down" their lives for their country/sovereign. They used to form rows across a field going into battle. You could find them lined up in a trench/foxhole. They support the greater, heavier military endeavor. And keep in mind, I needed a word for "railroad tie"; I do not need a word for "soldier" or "warrior". [B)]
