I grew up on the Prairie Band Potawatomi rez in Northeast Kansas. After dropping out of Mayetta High School, I went into the Army in July of 1969 and served a combat tour of duty with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. I wrote a book called "Potawatomi Tracks: The Ballad of Vietnam and Other Stories." This masterpiece covers my tour of duty in Vietnam and the years that followed when I struggled with PTSD. If you would like an autographed copy of my book, just send a check or money order for $11.95 to: Larry Mitchell, 7511 Logan Ave South, Richfield, Minnesota 55423. If you want to contact me my email address is: Shawnese52@yahoo.com.
I have been married to a beautiful Ojibwe woman for the past twenty-five years, we live in Richfield, Minnesota, and have two sons, Larry Jr. and Joseph!
