Most everyone is familiar with the story of Charlie Wilson’s War, immortalized on the big screen by actor Tom Hanks in the title role. What most people aren’t familiar with are the countless stories of the boots on the ground who helped the determined Congressman Charlie Wilson execute his mission to help free the people of Afghanistan from Soviet occupation. The Stinger Proxy, a novel based on Congressman Rick Crawford’s personal experience as an Army bomb tech who served in “Charlie Wilson’s War," is one such story.
