I got this E-Mail this morning.

The Media Missed this one!!!!



Please read this, then send it to everybody you know.

They'll thank you as they forward this to others as well.



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 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

Antonio.

<­BR>





A true American and friend to all in uniform!

This needs as wide a distribution

as we can create.


GOD BLESS YOU DENZEL

FOR YOUR PATRIOTISM

Ya, and I love seeing 'I got this interesting email the other day!' all the time.

Regardless, you need to relax, kid. I provided the link to Snopes which clarifies/debunks the email. You know, a 'useful contribution'. Try it sometime!

You're right; you should apply for a moderator position where your skills can really be appreciated.

1.) If you're going to shout dupe, throw down a link asshats... otherwise you're just being annoying.
2.) The guys still made a "sizable" donation, so he gets props in my book. I'm sure he could have easily afforded to pay for the whole thing, but the fact that he did what he did is still worthy of kudos.
3.) Did I mention the thing about the "dupe police"?
