Stephen Colbert partnered with the USO for a trip to the top of the world to meet the heroic women and men of the newest branch of America’s military, the Space Force. Listen to Stephen’s conversation with the highest ranking member of the Space Force, Chief Master Sgt. Roger A.

Next, country music star and Navy vet Sturgill Simpson shows up to perform some new lyrics for the Space Force anthem!
