Other groups of soldiers will visit the set via satellite from Afghanistan, Iraq and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D. C. In typical Colbert fashion, the episodes are aptly named: “Been There: Won That: The Returnification of the American-Do Troopscape.”

Vice President , Senator Jim Webb and General Ray Odiermo will be among the special guests lined up for the event. Odiermo is a “friend of the show;” he shaved Colbert’s head when the comedian previously hosted the series from Baghdad.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Late Night, Cable

Stephen ColbertAfter weeks of waiting, the time has finally come. On tonight’s episode of , NASA will officially reveal what the new international space station module will be named.
