Chuck Norris writes a weekly political column over at wnd.com. Do you read his column? Or, if you are just now hearing about it, will you read it? Please let us know in the comments.

After the series final  of Walker, Texas Ranger, Norris has not been very active in the acting world.  Though he did make a comeback for The Expendables 2 in 2012.  He has largely become a political figure more than an actor.

His column this week is all about Veterans Day.  He offers a lot of Veterans Day history as well as an overview of why we should honor our nations heroes.
