Writers from "The Late Show with David Letterman" came to Charleston
Air Force Base, S.C., to do a live-to-tape feature with 10 crewmembers
taking turns reading one of the comedian's infamous Top Ten List items
with a C-17 Globemaster as a backdrop. The segment aired May 2 to about
4 million viewers. Since January, Letterman has been occasionally shooting
the Top Ten List at various military installations around the world to
recognize servicemembers for their ongoing efforts to thwart terrorism.
Now, on to the list.
