Chuck Norris, an iconic actor, martial artist, and conservative commentator, received a big honor Wednesday from the Lone Star State.
According to World Net Daily, which Norris is a columnist for, the former “Walker, Texas Ranger” TV star and Oklahoma native was officially named an honorary Texan by the Texas Senate.
The resolution, which was unanimously approved, noted the 77-year-old’s U.S. Air Force military service in Korea, his long career of acting, his martial arts achievements, his community spirit in opening a chain of karate studios, his nonprofit organization to teach kids karate, and his many other philanthropic and entrepreneurial efforts.
The Senate proclaimed they were “pleased to honor Chuck Norris for his many contributions to our state and nation.”
They added that they “hereby commend Chuck Norris on his many achievements and extend to him best wishes for continued success in all his endeavors.”
Norris, a Christian, continues to remain active politically in standing up for Israel, our military, gun rights, and the founding principles of America.
