“Stars Earn Stripes” is a NBC television show that glorifies, trivializes, and sanitizes combat war for pure entertainment value.
A veteran's organization and nine (9) Nobel Peace Laureates are calling for NBC to immediately cease airing this show.
Why? Because as we have countless Veterans who are suffering from physical and emotional wounds as a result from combat war. in addition, for the families who have severely disabled family members who endure unimaginable hardships as a result of their war experience. This show is a slap in the face to these real life men and women of our Armed Forces and their families and friends.
This show makes war a game, and war is anything but a game. In real war there are no prizes only the hope that you survive to come home to one's family and friends. Men and women in combat face situations that are real, life threatening, and they do it for our freedom as a nation, not for a game show prize.
This is a terrible insult to our Veterans and our active duty Armed Forces.
Join me and other people who respect our men and women of the Armed Forces and the Veterans who have sacrificed for our freedom by signing this petition to call for the end of making war an entertainment game show. We would like “Stars Earn Stripes” cancelled immediately. I will also send the completed petition to Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
