NEW YORK, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is to make his first visit to "Late Show with David Letterman" in New York, CBS announced.

Rumsfeld is booked to appear on the Feb. 21 edition of the late-night chat show.

The secretary of defense during the administrations of President Gerald Ford and President George W. Bush, Rumsfeld is the second longest-serving defense secretary in United States history after Robert McNamara and the first to serve two non-consecutive terms in that role, CBS noted in a news release Monday.

His book "Known and Unknown: A Memoir," reflecting on his life and his half-century career in politics, was recently published.
