Call to Glory is an American drama which was aired for 22 episodes during the 1984–1985 TV season (specifically from August 1984 to February 1985) on the ABC network.
The show focuses on USAF pilot Colonel Raynor Sarnac (Craig T. Nelson) and his family, living near Edwards Air Force Base, where Sarnac was stationed during the early 1960s.
Heavily promoted during ABC's broadcast of the 1984 Summer Olympics, the pilot episode was aired August 13, 1984. The first episode is related to the U-2 flights over Cuba during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. During its production run, the show came to focus more on the loneliness experienced by wife Vanessa Sarnac (Cindy Pickett) while stationed on base and what she and the family would do to spend time in productive pursuits while enduring the Antelope Valley's isolation from civilization.
The series also stars Elisabeth Shue in one of her early roles as the eldest Sarnac child, daughter Jackie. Jackie aspired to be a fighter pilot like her dad, and she was steadfast in voicing her prediction that the exclusion against women would be lifted. This prediction came to pass in the actual US Air Force on April 28, 1993.
