About the Book

Kerosene Cowboys is soon to be a major motion picture starring Cam Gigandet (Twilight), Shane West (ER; A Walk to Remember), Rachel Leigh Cook (She’s All That), Bill Pullman (Independence Day), JC Chasez (*NSync) and directed by Mario Van Peebles (New Jack City)!

“Weekend warriors” conjures up visions of citizen-soldiers who serve one weekend per month to maintain proficiency in their chosen military career path. But for America’s Reserve Tactical Naval Aviators, that isn’t really the way that it goes.

Attack Squadron Two Zero Four (VA-204), an elite group of Navy Reserve pilots, streak through the nation’s skies out of their home base in New Orleans, Louisiana. These cream-of-the-crop “jet jocks” fly approximately two hundred days each year to preserve and polish their aviation skills. Just before Christmas 1991, the secretary of the Navy activated this band of rough-and-tumble, arrogant aviators to join an active-duty carrier air wing for an around-the-world deployment onboard the USS Enterprise.

Brad “Teen Angel” Ackerman and his band of rowdy squadron mates heat up their cockpits, barrooms, and bedrooms from coast to coast, establishing infamous reputations among their active-duty cohorts.
