Just got the story, linked below, in the standard "Tell everyone you know" e-mail...
This one, for once, is worth telling....
Denzel Washington visited Brooke Army Medical Center and made a substantial donation to the Fisher House Foundation: True.
The e-mail as I received it:
Subject: Denzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center
Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited
the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in San Antonio,Texas (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States, especially burn victims. There are some
buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher
House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay,
for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying
in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses
on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled
most of the time.
While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave
him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how
much one of them would cost to build. He took his check
book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there
on the spot. The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear
this story and want to get the word out to the American
public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it.
The question I have is why does:
Alec Baldwin, Madonna, Sean Penn and other Hollywood types
make front page news with their anti-everything
America trash and Denzel Washington'* Patriotism
doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of
any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San
