Reader comment on item: Muhammad Ali v. George W. Bush
in response to reader comment: Daft dodger

Submitted by DE g (United States), Feb 25, 2015 at 22:07

I was in I-corps Vietnam. I'll bet you liked Hanoi Hanna & Hanoi Jane too. Wow, getting prepped before the big fight. Probably a lot like the whomp of incoming mortars. Make sure those gloves are laced up just right. Almost as intense as when they blew up our ammo dump. Hard to take all this stress. Will he throw a right or why is my buddy laying in a pool of blood. Tough scenarios. Real versus make believe. I probably couldn't take down Muhammad Ali but he probably wouldn't last long in 1965 Dong Ha, Viet Nam.

when DRAFT-DODGERS become our heroes then we might as well fold up our flag & go home.
