Denzel Washington helps our troops - and our soldiers only know through word of mouth - this is a class act.

This is what the Main Stream Media is missing. All but PAGE SIX. And Stars and Stripes. They covered it along with a Base paper in Texas.
Below is a random e-mail forwarded to me by my husband, from his job at the plant (you see, word about a truly good deed does get around - even if Rogers & Cowan said no media (smile)

FW: Forwarded in hopes that you all will give this info maximum dissimilation........

Subject: Denzel Washington - 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 that have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the States, especially burn victims. They have 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 completely 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 {THEY} 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 crap and this doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the base newspaper in San Antonio?

More about Fisher House and Denzel's story (this version is what actually happened):
