ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU – â€œStars Earn Stripesâ€ is not just another reality show. Hosted by retired four-star general Wesley Clark, the program pairs minor celebrities with US military personnel and puts them through simulated military training, including some live fire drills and helicopter drops.
