Navy Secretary Ray Mabus spent about five minutes with Stephen Colbert on Thursday, but the two entertainment icons — one’s taking over for David Letterman next year, the other had a role in “Battleship” – packed a lot of big issues into one quick interview. A sampling:
Watch the full episode, including Colbert’s take on the ongoing Veterans Affairs Department scandal, here.
How about naming a ship after John Wayne? He’s dead, he was a hell of a patriot, and we already have an entire ship class named after an actor who wasn’t even born in America (Bob Hope).

@Shawn Colson – Bob Hope was not born in America, but was a Naturalized Citizen and did more for our troops and in support of our troops than many with his means do today. He definitely deserved the class far more than a Stephen Colbert write in campaign could EVER acheive. And this from a long-time fan of both…
If you need to be dead to have a ship named after you, how would the Secretary explain USS ARLEIGH BURKE, USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH, and handful of others for whom the namesake was present at the ship’s commissioning?
Hey thats not true, the newest carrier in service namesake is still alive. USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH
