墜死 == tsushi == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) falling to one's death
失墜 == shittsui == (noun that can take する to act as a verb) abasement, fall, forfeit, sink [in men's estimation]




Top radical is 'corps/unit' (隊), used in its original meaning of 'fall down a hill'. Bottom radical is 'earth/ground' (土). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Corps falls to ground.'
