IAVA to Name Colbert Honorary War Vet
Political pundit Stephen Colbert could be named, if his petition on IAVA receives 25,000 signatures (there are currently almost 15,000), an Honorary War Vet.
Quite frankly, regardless of how entertaining the man is, he's still an entertainer. He hasn't earned a uniform or taken an oath, and he's not a warrior. To bequeath upon him such a title is to mock the true warriors who fight and bleed and die for us. Colbert is already famous and well-recognized. Despite his tour to Iraq to entertain the troops, I still feel that he isn't worthy of the title.
