Put on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list in 1977 for his involvement in bombings by the radical Marxist group United Freedom Front, Vietnam veteran Raymond Luc Levasseur was arrested in 1984, charged with bombings and bank robery and sentenced to 45 years in prison. From his cell in 1992, Levasseur wrote a personal essay, My Blood is Québécois, in which he traced his rebellion and radicalization to growing up as a Franco-American “frog” in a small town in Maine, the descendant of Quebec immigrants who’d come south to work as mill workers. Released on parole in 2004, Levasseur returned to live in Maine; today he looks back on his life.
