Denzel Washington - A True AMERICAN Actor

I received an email today regarding Denzel Washington. As with all emails, I first checked it's validity on, and it appears this story is mostly true. Here is the email in it's entirety, and below it are some clarifications about the some statements in the email:

Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troups 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 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.

As I mentioned earlier, the basics of this email are true. Denzel did make a substantial contribution, but he didn't take out his checkbook and write a check on the spot. He actually made a contribution a few months later. But, for the most part, the story is accurate. His visit was back in 2004.

It is funny to me how news like this doesn't get picked up by the mainstream media, but at least there are sites like this one that are trying to spread the good news.

Good luck and make it a great day!

P.S. If you'd like to help out the soldiers at Fort Sam Houston, you can make a contribution on their website at
