Good story

I received the following email today:
Hopefully you all will give this info maximum dissemination........
> Subject: Denzel Washington
> - Brooks Army Medical Center
Don't know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brooks 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, Modonna, 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.
Now, why does the sender have to end a good story with hatred? I did some research and found that the story was exaggerated. My response:
Please look up the facts before widely circulating these types of chains. While what Denzel did do was a great thing, it was also exaggerated. He did not pull out his checkbook on the spot and pay for the whole thing himself, although he did make a substantial donation. For more on this, click here.

Also, a quick LexisNexis search pulls up zero front page articles on Sean Penn, Madonna, and Alec Baldwin.

Also, please see this: It shows just how much the left "hates America." There was discussion on the Denzel donation story on Air America Radio on June 8, you know the evil liberal radio network.

Please. Truth is good. Whole truth, not partial.

I have posted this message at for all to see and discuss.
