WWE Tribute to the Troops 2015, the 13th annual of one of the company’s most special shows of the year, will be taped on December 8, 2015 from the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, FL. The USA Network will air the show on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 at 8 PM ET.
Below are quotes from dot com:
Florida Governor Rick Scott said, "We can never thank our veterans and military members enough for their brave service to our nation. It is important to frequently honor our American heroes for the sacrifices they have made to keep our families safe. Florida remains the most military friendly state in the nation and we are proud to host this year’s Tribute to the Troops celebration."
"WWE has gone above and beyond the call of duty in supporting the men and women of the U.S. Navy," said Rear Adm. Mary Jackson, Commander, Navy Region Southeast. "We are very fortunate to have the upcoming Tribute to the Troops right here in Jacksonville, home to more than 22,000 Sailors and their families. I am hearing lots of excitement and energy about this event! This is also a special time for us to say thank you to WWE!"
"It is a privilege for WWE to entertain our military as a way to thank them for their commitment and sacrifice for our country," said WWE Chairman & CEO, Vince McMahon. "Everyone at WWE looks forward to this annual celebration, and we are proud to partner with the U.S. Navy and Governor Rick Scott to put smiles on the faces of the servicemen and women and their families.”

With no Smackdown taping yet scheduled for that week, I would expect WWE to tape Smackdown with Tribute to the Troops, as that is what they did last year. The show is open to military personnel and their families free of charge. Usually, the talent has a blast and it’s a really fun taping.
