Celebrating a draft dodger on Memorial Day weekend?

ESPN Classic is doing a series of replays of famous boxing matches from the past this weekend- Memorial Day weekend. Many of these fights involve Muhammed Ali, who was a famous draft dodger during the Vietnam era. At least he was a man and took his punishment for it instead of slinking off to Canada, but still- should we celebrate a man who actively ran from his duty to our country on a holiday devoted to memorializing our war dead? That just doesn't seem right to me.

i agree. memorial day is for those who served, who went through hell to protect this country. muhammad ali has no place on that day, he's a pathetic draft dodger. people like that make me kind of sick, because there were plenty of people who didn't want to go, but they were men and went anyway.
