Denzel Washington an American Hero!!!!

Don't know whether youheard about this

but Denzel Washingtonand his family visitedthe troops at BrookArmyMedicalCenter ,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 trashand Denzel Washington's Patriotism

doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of

any newspaper !!!!!
