That’s about to come true on NBC. Gen. Wesley Clark, who both commanded NATO’s war in Kosovo in 1999 and briefly ran for president in 2004, will host a reality composition show called Stars Earn Stripes. On the show, according to NBC’s press release,
Competitors will gather at a remote training facility where they will tackle complicated and difficult missions that are inspired by real military exercises. Each will be paired with an “operative” who is a member or a former member of our armed forces or law enforcement agencies.
