    danger was from

    Can one say

    a) There was no fighting going on where we did our military service. The major danger we put ourselves in was from sunburn.

    b) There was no fighting going on where we did our military service. The major danger we put ourselves in was from being exposed too long to the sun.

    c) There was no fighting going on where we did our military service. The major danger we put ourselves in was getting sunburned.

    ?

    (c) sounds fine to me and (a) sounds incorrect. (b) is a bit strange... the danger was from being exposed too long to the sun... that seems logical... and yet (b) sounds strange to me!

    Many thanks.
