Killed In Action
KILLED IN ACTION (KIA) is a casualty classification generally used by militaries to describe the deaths of their own combatants at the hands of hostile forces. The United States
United States
Department of Defense , for example, says that those declared KIA need not have fired their weapons but have been killed due to hostile attack. KIAs do not come from incidents such as accidental vehicle crashes and other "non-hostile" events or terrorism. KIA can be applied both to front-line combat troops and to naval, air and support troops. Someone who is killed in action during a particular event is denoted with a † (dagger ) beside their name to signify their death in that event or events. Further, KIA denotes one to have been killed in action on the battlefield whereas DIED OF WOUNDS (DOW) relates to someone who survived to reach a medical treatment facility

Madagascar
MADAGASCAR (/ˌmædəˈɡæskər/ ; Malagasy : Madagasikara), officially the REPUBLIC OF MADAGASCAR (Malagasy: Repoblikan'i Madagasikara ; French : République de Madagascar), and previously known as the Malagasy Republic , is an island country in the Indian Ocean , off the coast of East Africa . The nation comprises the island of Madagascar (the fourth-largest island in the world), and numerous smaller peripheral islands. Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana , Madagascar split from the Indian peninsula around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot ; over 90% of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island's diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population and other environmental threats
