Norris Shrine Inspires U.s. Troops In Iraq

Veteran action movie star CHUCK NORRIS is helping to inspire U.S. troops in Iraq - after soldiers erected a shrine to the tough guy in their base. The actor has been immortalised by the army serving in Baghdad, which has a cardboard dedication to Norris at their helicopter base, emblazoned with Chuck Norris 'facts' in celebration of the star. Norris himself has visited Iraq on several occasions, and was made an honorary Marine last year (07). U.S. troops insist his support for them and Norris' invincible image has made him their idol. Sergeant Joe Lindsay says, "The jokes all add to his legend. They're not derogatory. He's an icon."
