By March 1961, the 22 year-old, 6' 3" 183 lb. U.S. Marine/Professional Boxer
re-entered the U.S. Military, to 'ask not what your country can do for you, but

Later 'Atom Amos' Johnson said, " I guess Cassius Clay didn't understand that statement.'

Clay was more of an "ask what you can do for Elijah Muhammad" kind of guy.
