  • subject to hostile fire or explosion of hostile mines;
  • on duty in an area in which the employee was in imminent danger of being exposed to hostile fire or explosion of hostile mines and in which, during the period of duty in that area, other employees were subject to hostile fire or explosion of hostile mines; or
  • killed, injured, or wounded by hostile fire, explosion of hostile mine, or any other hostile action.
