1964-ish, changes his name to some weird religious name.
1967-ish announces will not serve in the military as has no fight with those viet congs.....

Watching this unfold on TV with my wounded in Vietnam 1965, still in the USMC Lt Col father.
I start to get fussy at a very young age, about Ali's thoughts, names,.........
Dad says: he might have a point about Vietnam, and we salute religious freedom always (or similar)......

As I aged, I realized how fabulous an athlete Muhammad Ali was, and how
smart/right on Muhammad and my Dad seemed to get with their spoken words...... [thumb]

RIP both of you.....
