Flashback: When David Petraeus was simply known as "Peaches" & was a member of the "French Club"
An amusing entry from the 1974 West Point yearbook: David Howell Petraeus, who today takes over the CIA.
Peaches has come a long way from his days with the French Club.
UPDATE: Mark Thompson provides the backstory:
As a cadet at West Point, he was known as Peaches. “When I was a kid playing Little League baseball, and you know, you’ve got a name like Petraeus, nobody could pronounce that, and I sort of looked probably a little like a peach in those days when I was the age of eight or nine, and came up to bat in the Little League game, and the announcer said, `Now at bat is David P-P- P-Peaches,'” Petraeus explains. “And it stuck. And if you asked my classmates at West Point, which is about as far as it went, you know, about me, they will always respond with that.”
