Colbert Tormenting the Troops

Oh dear gawd!  Stephen Colbert is in Iraq.

Warning:  Hair Alert!

And, just so’s ya know, he’ll be there ALL week.sc

Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando” is taking place at an undisclosed military base in conjunction with the USO, with all shows taped in front of an audience of troops. The week will feature many segments including Colbert putting together USO care packages for the troops and “shout outs” from notable figures in society.

tiny-div2Here’s a bit more on Colbert’s trip to Iraq from the New York Times.  I found this touching, and a bit unexpected.

On the other hand he is unquestionably a real supporter of the troops, raising money through donorschoose.org for school supplies for children of soldiers, through his WristStrong bracelets for the Yellow Ribbon Fund, which helps injured veterans, and by donating to the U.S.O. proceeds from iTunes downloads of this week’s episodes.
