Denzel Washington

Paul Hinkle sent this to me. It's a great FYI.



Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC (Brook Army Medical Center, in San

Antonio,Texas) 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 that soldiers' families can stay at, 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 to the brim 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 got his check book

out and wrote a check out 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. I hope you will spread this story.


Washington has a son who is a Marine in Iraq.



I wrote back to Paul and said this,


Wow, now I love him even more. I always loved him as an actor and he always seemed like a person of integrity. That is just great!
