A wound acquired during a night of heavy drinking. a war wound often tells a tale, as most are collected during a period of blackout and hint at where the injured individual may have been the night prior. scrapes, cuts, bruises, sprains or broken bones all qualify as war wounds.
Oh dude, i woke up this morning with a couple of sick war wounds. i figure i must have gone to the beach last night after that bottle of rye because this cut on my knee is full of sand.
