During the first episode of filming The Colbert Report in Iraq, titled Operation Iraqi Stephen: Going Commando, Stephen Colbert sacrificed his hair for the troops.
The host wore a camouflage suit and tie as his first guest, Gen. Ray Odierno, accepted a video message from President Obama to shave Colbert's head.
The purpose of this show was to bring attention to the six year war which has been overshadowed by economic news.
Colbert even poked fun of the troops by saying, "It must be nice here in Iraq because I understand some of you keep coming back again and again. You've earned so many frequent flyer miles, you've earned a free ticket to Afghanistan."
The Colbert Report's trip to Iraq marks the first time anyone has broadcast a taped show from a tour in order to entertain U.S. troops.
