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 checkbook 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 is -why do: Brad Pitt, Madonna, Tom Cruise and other Hollywood fluff make front page news with their ridiculous antics 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?
