; The Media Missed this one!!!! (BIG SURPRISE)
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.
Why do Alec Baldwin, Madonna, Sean Penn and other Hollywood types
make front page news with their anti-everything
America crap and Denzel Washington's Patriotism
doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of
any newspaper except the Local newspaper in San
Urban Legend. Check Snopes. He did make a big donation though.
anyone got a link?
i liked his movies and would feel pretty good buying some more if this is true.
eta: well, it's true enough for me!
I wouldn't call it an urban myth, more of an urban exaggeration.
hey spent a good bit of time at walter reed and i don't think he refused pix with anyone. kept it hush-hush, too. i never heard mention of it in the local news.
ETA: oh yeah, d00p!!!
