Coinciding with the withdrawal of U.S. combat forces from Iraq, Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert will host two special episodes devoted to the troops, reports The New York Times.
During the Thursday night broadcast of "The Colbert Report," Colbert announced that on Sept. 8 and 9 his broadcasts would be a tribute to American service members.
The shows will be called “Been There: Won That: The Returnification of the American-Do Troopscape.”
Said Colbert: “No matter how you felt about this war, we Americans sent them off to fight it. And now that it’s over, we should thank them. And quickly, because I think a lot of them are getting sent to Afghanistan.”
