The Minutemen are a group of battle hardened old soldiers that have stuck together threw the thick and thin, these old warriors are all thats left of a company of soldiers that were abandoned by there government during the Korean War in the wake of the Great Ghost Dance and other tragic events during the early part of the twenty-first century. These men lead by Colonel Richard Kirby, fought against all odds and made it home from the foreign soil only to return branded traitors and terrorists, blamed for the tragedies that befell America.
Through the years many of the surviving members of this unit have passed away or been captured and executed as traitors, this has forced the remaining brothers in arms to band together and extended family and take up arms once again. This time they are standing together against the tyranny of the UCAS and NAN, they have crawled out of hell only to be almost swallowed up by the beast that awaited them. The Sons of Liberty (Freedom Patriots) became the home for many of the troubled members and have given these troubled and scared men a home, a place to rest their weary heads and place to vent there frustration and anger towards the injustice that befell them back in 2017. The Minutemen are men who have sacrificed everything to seek the justice and answers for why they were abandoned and used as a scapegoat for the countries dysfunction.
During the events of the Ghost Dance and beyond, the leaders of this great nation skated responsibility and tried to capitalize on the ensuing chaos to call martial law and lock the country down under the tyranny of the President and his iron regime. This plan backfired do to the actions of one man who we know to be War Zone, this set the tyrants in Washington D.C back years and as well forced them to enact plan B. That was passing the blame onto a special forces company deep in the trenches of North Korea and make them the bad guys, and passing the blame to these innocent honourable men that knew nothing of what was going on state side. Well if it wasn’t for the actions of the Deaths Hand namely Alexander the Great being at the right place at the right time, we might never have heard the truth about the Minutemen and these noble hero’s would have been executed in a German military prison and buried in a nameless grave branded war criminals and traitors.
Alexander just happened to be within Germany with his friends and allies War Machine, Polaris, Smoky and Dictator (This was prior to the European Conquest) This band of soon to be tyrants heard the radio hail for assistance and saw the North Korean Helicopter coming in hot, they as well heard the radio transmissions from the German military police calling for the surrender of these American servicemen. In probably what will be the only time the early Deaths Hand career they did the right thing and assisted the American servicemen and engaged the German military police. This distraction allowed the helicopter to be able to evade capture. Though during the fight the pilot Colonel Richard Kirby was wounded, and they received heavy damage to the helicopter. Though the fates where with them and they managed by sheer dumb luck and advanced fuel cell technology to be able to make it to small airport in France.
Once in France the Minutemen had to move quickly to refuel and resupply the medical equipment to help there ailing commander who had risked everything to save the lives of his fellow men like any good leader would. Do to the quick thinking of the units only surviving medic now Doctor Victor Wilcox, they were able to stabilize Colonel Kirby while in France before they were forced once again to take to the skies to avoid arrest. This led these men to risk everything again and test the helicopters advanced fuel cell technology and vectored thrust engines with a cross Atlantic flight. This was a huge risk for these men, since something of this calibre hadn’t been tried in this type of aircraft and if they ran out of fuel well death would be certain and painful.
The Minutemen risked this only do there love and respect for there commander who would surly die without proper medical treatment, though they didn’t know what was waiting for them on American soil but these men didn’t seem to care and didn’t care about the odds. The flight across the Atlantic was treacherous and they lost many of the wounded they had on board. Father Dougherty the units Chaplin decreed that they needed to decrease the weight in the aircraft and they would have to bury at sea many of their fallen brothers. As the pilot a young man nicknamed Rooster was having trouble dealing with the cross winds and handling the aircraft as he had only flown crop dusters in Kansas prior. Father Dougherty opened the hatch doors and started the blessings as two of the minute men launched the bodies of their fallen brothers out of the craft and watched as the vanished into the deep blue ocean below. Meanwhile Colonel Kirby was taking a turn for the worse and it seemed that he would surly die before they made it to a hospital, and the noble commander would join his brothers with a burial at sea.
Dr. Wilcox continued to do everything he could for Kirby including doing a emergency live field transfusion, and as if the fates had smiled on the Minutemen they picked up tail winds and eventually could see land on the horizon, though they were not out of the woods yet as Rooster announced fuel supplies have been all but depleted and Kirby was starting to look as if the grim reaper was about to visit. The remaining men joined hands as Rooster worked his magic to keep the craft airborne they started to pray to the lord above. By some miracle rooster was able to land the craft of the South Carolina coast, though not to softly and one of the men a man named Private Mark Jones was thrown from the helicopter as the hatch door ripped off, he met a fate that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy (Out of respect to the family, I will spare you the grim details). They had made it home to America but they were not out of the fire yet, the crash had alerted the attention of the locals and the authorities.
Lucky for the Minutemen it also alerted the attention of members of the Sons of the True Confederacy, and this paramilitary unit was the first to arrive on the scene to investigate and scavenge the parts and supplies of the downed military helicopter. To there surprise they found survivors and quickly figured out who these men where, as their images, names and unit patch was being blasted all over the news as criminals of the United States. The SOTC unit not caring about fallowing the laws of the treasonous government and knew these men needed medical attention quickly they loaded the wounded and survivors into there cargo truck and speed off into the night as the night sky behind them began to glow with the reds and blues of the flashing emergency and law enforcement vehicles. Initially the men where taken to a makeshift medical facility in Myrtle Beach and the more severely wounded where airlifted to a hospital in Charleston.
After many months of recovery the vast majority of the surviving members of the Minutemen where released, though Colonel Kirby had fallen into a deep coma during the accident and his outlook was grim. The hospital in Charleston was also being used as a temporary base on operations for the SOTC within South Carolina and the commander on duty was also the commander and chief Edward Davis, he knew that Colonel Kirby’s only chance for recovery would be to transfer him to Boston, the Sons of Liberty (Freedom Patriots) had the medical technology and equipment to spare this man’s life. He also deemed that these brave soldiers would never serve freely under the Confederate banner, though they would surly serve under the stars and stripes of the Patriots. Davis made a quick phone call to his friend and ally Archibald Kingsbury the Patriots founder and president, they two spoke for a few minutes and Kingsbury agreed to the transfer and he made sure his medical team was ready for Kirby and others that where still not out of the woods medically.
He also openly welcomed any member of the Minutemen within his ranks if they choose to serve, once the surviving members of this troubled unit arrived in Boston they where fully debriefed as to the grim situation and why it seems there country had abandoned them. They were promised that the Sons of Liberty would never abandon them in their time of need, and as Salem spoke the battered men just absorbed everything he was saying and went through all the documentation they had received from various other mobile Sons Of Liberty (Freedom Patriots) outposts throughout the United States. These men all agreed to stay and join in the defence of the American citizen till they couldn’t physically do it any more.
Meanwhile Colonel Kirby was now being looked after by some of New England’s best medical minds, and eventually when all looked grim after many months of blood, sweat and tears Kirby awoke from his coma and arose from his bed. Though he was week and his muscles partially atrophied from lack of use, he with assistance of his close friend Father Dougherty also simple referred to as Happy was able to walk out of his hospital room and make his way to his awaiting men, that remained in the waiting area like they where sitting vigil for this day. Kirby stood there before his bewildered men, leaning heavy into Happy he rose his right arm and saluted his brothers in arms. By that point Sargent Thurmond raced over with a wheel chair for his commander. Kirby sat down hard and exhausted into the chair, he was confused and a bit taken aback as to where he was since his last memory was in Germany and being under fire. He wasn’t even sure of the day, the month nothing. His memory had been damaged from the deep coma he was in and he had no memory of the current events.
This troubled Kirby and he demanded to be debriefed and filled in, his men wanted to follow his orders but also looked to Dr. Wilcox the team medic for advice. Wilcox just said “Sir, in do time. Right now you need to regain your strength and your memories will come back over time.” this is how the next few months where for Kirby as he went through intense physical therapy and learning how to cope with some of the new cybernetic implants he had do to extreme nature of his wounds. His left eye was gone and replaced with a glass eye, as his optical nerve had become infected and rejected the cyber optic, his lower left leg had been replaced with cyber. Kirby still felt phantom pains but he mustered through and through the coming months, he steadily recovered and eventually was back to his old self physically though Kirby had been damaged mentally. He was explained everything he couldn’t remember and there are some nights still today he curses being fully debriefed. Though a man like Kirby would never be able to accept not knowing the truth, and he deserved to hear it from his friends and brothers.
Since those days the remaining members of the Minutemen have been sworn loyalists of the Sons of Liberty (Freedom Patriots), these men have more then served there time in hell and have fought the injustices of natives and the government of the new United Canadian American States. Eventually through the years many of these former soldiers have fallen to age or capture and have been publicly hung as traitors, this once noble company has been brought down to a mere ten men and these men have been dragged back into the fight that they have tried to leave behind them. They have been dragged back into the war, that has taken so many of their brothers. These remaining men now all older and tired have rejoined together as a band of brothers to defend one another from the unlawful prosecution, to protect the innocent and feeling like they owe a debt to Colonial for the gifts the Patriots have given them through the years.
The Minutemen where all scattered during the Battle for Seattle’s Independence and only Kirby fought among his fellow Patriots in the battles that took place outside of the city. Once word had spread of the sacrifices of the warriors inside Fort Lewis the Minutemen once again hung up their civilian clothing, kissed their wives good bye, put their uniforms back on, laced up their boots grabbed their riffles and marched on by one back to the side of there weary commander and swore the oath once again for once a Marine always a Marine and marched as a unit back into a war they left behind many years prior. Semper Fi, Minutemen may God look after each and everyone of you. You have given everything and more to this war and now you have returned to give everything you have left, these men are shinning examples of true hero’s and patriots again Semper Fi Minutemen!

Locomotive: How this solider is still alive is a mystery from serious drug and alcohol addiction, multiple suicide attempts, post traumatic stress and serious clinical depression. The Locomotive has gallons of blood on his hands and has seen the worst of the war, he had to watch as his family was rounded up and executed and he couldn’t do anything about it. He retired from the fighting and just walked away from everything in hopes to put his troubled past behind him. Only to have it come full circle and with the war coming to him, as he would be forced to hide and live with people he learned despised him and though he was a traitor and deserved to hang.

Bunny might be a drunk, but this old soldier is suffering from nightmares and is haunted by his bloody past. He has as well returned to the fight and is more then willing to lay his life down in defence of Lady Liberty from the oppression of the UCAS and the False Flag.
Rapture: The last remaining sniper of this unit is called Rapture and this man has murdered hundreds through his long career with the Patriots and the Minutemen. Rapture eventually could no longer take up arms against the misguided and he could not stomach all the needless killing. With already loosing his family to the war while he was in Vietnam the Rapture needed to attempt to live a normal life, starting a new family was not on his agenda, but his heart betrayed him and eventually so did the people of his town and the war would come for Rapture. He is one of the few that returned to the war with a clean conscience, Rapture came clean to his family and to his surprise he was accepted and welcomed. He knows that he will probably die this time around and he is ready to meet his maker when the time comes, though his family awaits his safe return home.
Rooster: The Rooster as well walked away from the war after many years of fighting, this man was just tired of the fighting, the killing and the hatred that was being spewed forth by both sides. He watched as his country betrayed him, his family arrested and his country split by a civil war and then the False Flag. He watched as other Minutemen where captured and branded traitors and publicly executed. Rooster wound up getting lost in the bottle and haunted as he slept, nothing seemed to silence the demons in his head. Till the day of the Battle of Seattle when he would return to the fight to stand alongside his remaining brothers in arms.
Morgue: The chief medical officer is the last one of the medical corps to survive through the years. Morgue has had a harsh life and on many occasions was forced to forgo his oath to do no harm, to save his skin from an enemy that was all around him. Morgue walked away from the war trying to save what was left of his humanity and mortal soul, only to fall victim to the pills that would help him cope with the nightly torment and pain. Morgue has returned to the war knowing that he is one of the few men his fellow Minutemen trust and he can no longer sit docilely by as the remaining Minutemen are rounded up and wrongfully executed.
Happy: The old spiritual advisor of the Minutemen should actually be called gloomy as he has heard it all and seen everything. Happy managed to save many of his units mortal souls but at what cost to his, as this man was forced to do things that a normal Chaplin would never have been asked to do. His guidance managed to save Duster and Junior from self destructing, though Happy is forever trapped with the memories of these men’s actions. His faith questioned and his soul in jeopardy Happy became addicted to pain medication and alcohol in order to survive his nightly terror that awaited him as he laid his head down on the pillow. Happy decided that he needed to return to the fight, if not for him but to be the voice of reason for the other members of his unit that look up to him as a mentor and father figure even though they are all close in age. Happy knows that he might die this time around, but he is prepared to meet his maker and he doesn’t want his death to be in vain when it does come.
Carpenter: This man has been through hell and back and then he dove head first back into hell and climbed out once more. The Carpenter has seen the worst the world can throw at him and ha managed to maintain a cheerful disposition even though deep inside this man is suffering, the Carpenter walked away from the war and left his past behind him hoping that he could just live a normal life in small town America. Though for this old soldier you might be able to take him out of the war, but you cant take the war out of him and he was forced to live in fear of being found out. The Carpenter has been suffering from post traumatic stress for decades and has been self medicating with basically anything he can find to ease the pain in his mind, body and soul. Once the war returned to his life and the Carpenter would loose everything for a second time, with nothing left he walked right back into the war and has taken up arms again alongside his remaining brothers.
