Is it "to be fired up for something" or "to get fired up for something"?

BTW, is it possible to "be/get fired up for someone"?

Thank you.

Consider this simple example.

Every morning, I get dressed This is an action.

After that, I am dressed. This is a state


It's the same with your example.

First, I get fired up about something.

After that, I am fired up about something.

Note that the most common preposition is 'about' or 'over', not 'for'.


BTW, is it possible to "be/get fired up for someone"? I suppose so, but it's harder to think of realistic contexts.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Should I use "got" or "were" in the sentence below?

Two American soldiers were/got killed in an ambush on the outskirts of Baghdad.

Thank you.

Either is fine, but 'got killed' is more informal.
