That's far from true. The most grizzly ground pounder I've ever known was still unwilling to die. Perhaps they accept they might. Patton said it best, it's better that your enemy dies for their country (paraphrased).
The reason I mentioned military training was only to point out that all education levels, backgrounds, intellects, genders, races, religions, etc, are taught and can learn good hygiene and organization. There was some reference above that it was beyond some people. I fully disagree.
