Actor Dom DeLuise plays the great sidekick to Burt Reynolds in the 1981 movie Cannonball Run. In this picture he has at least 14 service stripes and is the rank of Private / E-2. Burt Reynolds told him he was a "Career Private" and is he up for a promotion anytime soon?

I had a squad leader back in 3rd ID in 2003 that told me the quickest way to make E3 in Korea was to show up as an E4. I think maybe Private DeLuise served 42 consecutive tours in Korea.
Classic movie!

I guess by that logic, he started serving in Korea long before the Korean War. I'll have to revise my thoughts on this one...

I'm thinking that he would had to been on extra duty for roughly 3-4 years alone if he received 45/45 from a company commander each time.

CPT Jacob Swartout - Hahaha. There should be a whole new medal for surviving that much extra duty!

His retirement plaque would include a symbolic key to the janitor's closet.

Likely so and he can keep the mop and broom as a token of appreciation too!
