These classifications are defined as follows:

ACTIVE DUTY WARTIME OR CAMPAIGN BADGE VETERAN: A veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service on active duty during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized, under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.
