As a private in the United States Army, Terry Dome spent the better part of the Vietnam War working as a tank mechanic at an Army maintenance facility in Backwaters, Pennsylvania. That was nearly half a century ago. Now with lungs crippled by cancer because of his work with asbestos in the military, Terry is extremely angry. Trips to the V.A. Hospital accomplished nothing but resentment. Terry knew they were going to wait him out and that he would be dead soon. His son Joe thought the world of him and wondered why his government wouldn’t help him more. His dad required strong pain medication, but Mr. Dome was refused this relief because his doctors did not want Terry to get addicted to the medication. The military stressed that he should take it like a man. This upset Joe so much that he took it upon himself to broadcast this injustice. So, Joe started writing on social media about the mistreatment that his father suffered. He was persuasive with the pen and accurate with the information, and he soon gathered a following. His essays about how a small elite group in politics attained the power to come into ordinary peoples’ lives and mandate that their sons, to do their dirty work of killing under the disguise of patriotism. Although Terry did not serve in any war, he was repairing tanks designed to kill the enemies of our country thousands of miles away. They were just farmers protecting their land against an army of occupiers. As one killed one, another retaliated, and another one got killed. The reality of what was happening sank into the new generation via the media and the country experienced turmoil. The old M4 tanks parked at American Legion locations were unleased by the National Guard. Terry texted that a 5# bag of flour and a bottle of water thrown at the radiator would overheat and stop them. This revolution WILL be televised, live and in color via millions of cell phones without censorship. An American winter is on the horizon.
