Larry Grathwohl has died. Not too many people know his name but people should know who he was.
Larry Grathwohl risked his life to protect the American people from a domestic terrorist organization led by Bill Ayers. Ayers also happens to be the man who gave Barack Obama his start in politics.
Read what this brave man learned about those who would take over our country and murder up to 25 million Americans.
