Larry Grathwohl is one of those increasingly rare individuals who has led a truly extraordinary life. However, after speaking with him I found that he is an unassuming and truly humble man who has a strong belief in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Larry Grathwohl BIO
I joined the US Army in October of 1964 and after basic training I went through jump school and became a paratrooper assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. I went to Vietnam with the 1st Brigade as part of the 2 Battalion of the 502nd Infantry in July of 1965. I was 17 at the time and I consider that this was the first time I encountered the communists and the threat they represented to the United States and to our way of life.
During my 13 month tour, my unit received two Presidential Unit Citations, a Meritorious Unit Citation, Valorous Unit Award, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm Unit Citation and several other medalsincluding a Bronze Star with a V.
Upon returning from Vietnam I was assigned to Fort Knox Kentucky as a Drill instructor and I served in this capacity until my discharge in July of 1968. I then enrolled at the University of Cincinnati and in the summer of 1969 I was recruited by members of the Weatherman faction of the Students for a Democratic Society. ~snip~ I went to the Cincinnati Police Department who requested that I go to the meetings I had been invited to attend and let them know what was going on.

I found myself in meetings planning bombings meant to kill and injure as many people as possible

Habeas corpus, due process, the sanctity of contracts, unfettered freedom of speech, and the right to keep and bear arms are stuffy old concepts that date back to the Magna Carta.
These old-fashioned, individualistic notions of “liberty” must be subordinated to the State so that it can create a new order of positive rights, and direct society toward utopia. Obviously they need to be destroyed.
What? You think that due process is more important than gay marriage? You homophobic philistine!
