C-17 featured on Letterman

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.
