Colbert to Honor Returning Troops

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert will honor troops returning from the war in Iraq in the best way he can: by making them laugh. Two special episodes of The Colbert Report titled "Been There: Won That: The Returnification of the American-Do Troopscape" are slated to air September 8 and 9. During both episodes the audience will be comprised of active duty military service men and women and Iraq vets; Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sen. Jim Webb and the U.S. military commander in Iraq, Gen. Ray Odierno (who shaved Colbert's head during a broadcast in Iraq last year on orders from President Obama) will also be present.
