Don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Chuck Norris is not dead, despite many false reports on the net. This is not a living eulogy, just my reflection on one of my childhood movie heroes.

As an 80s kid, I was a huge Chuck and Bruce Lee fan. They were pioneers of the martial arts professional turned actor.

Chuck Norris made his acting debut in the 1969 film The Wrecking Crew. He met and befriended Bruce Lee while competing in martial arts tournaments.

Long before the SEAL community sold its soul to Hollywood with the SOCOM Navy SEALs video game, Spike Lee navy recruiting videos, and A-listers parading through the compound (…and this was long before me and the guys started writing books) there was a Norris movie called The Delta Force. Then came, “Delta Force 2!”
