Denzel Washington Visits
Brook Army Medical Center:
I don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Center, in SanAntonio,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 FisherHouses. 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 DenzelWashington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the FisherHouses. 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.
So I am passing this on to all of you:))
