Default I visited Joe Louis' grave yesterday



For those that don't, the US buried him in Arlington cemetery, which is essentially a military cementary, and ironically in his death finally gave recognition for what he had done for America during his time in the service. RIP Champ! Top 3 heavyweight of all time imo. Wish that I was old enough to see him fight live.

It's funny, I only live 20 miles away from it but I haven't been to Arlington National Cemetary in years.
