Petraeus feels dizzy

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Probably Brain Fatigue, from trying to remember where he won all those medals he wears.
  2. Hopefully it was just dehydration and fatigue. He does have a bit of medical history. He had radiation treatments for cancer a few years ago. A broken pelvis about 10 years ago from skydiving; which supposedly still causes ppain and if I recall correctly, a few years before that he was shot in the chest by a soldier's ND during an exercise. He is supposedly a pretty decent guy. Hope he is OK.
  3. 1990 during a LFX a Frag Grenade blast knocked a private off his feet while he was firing. 1X 5.56mm M855 to Petraeus chest. Senator Bill Frist was the Doctor who operated on him. He performed 50 pushups for the doctors before being signed out of the Hospital.

    He made sure the Kid wasnt court-martialed for it and eventually sent the kid to Ranger school.
  4. Now you've sussed this football thing (sorry soccer), bring on a sub, say ummm

    Oliver North maybe :)
  5. If he can't even get his drinking drills right in Washington then we're pretty focked for any other of his plans we follow elsewhere...

    Also his bumkisser, sorry, ADC, should surely have been looking after him?
