Crew Dogs is a story about a group of young men driven into the Air Force by the poor economy of the late 1970s and early 1980s. They come together in training for a job they know little, if any, about. Over the course of a decade these liberal arts educated ne'er do wells coalesce into a dedicated cadre of professional Cold War warriors, highly trained and focused on winning Reagan's largely imaginary war, all the while relentlessly pursuing romance, self-improvement, and an understanding of the greater world--a world that includes of course, sex, violence and a great deal of humor.
