Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC (Brook Army Medical Center, in San Antonio, Texas) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evac'd 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 that soldiers' families can stay at 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 to the brim 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 got his checkbook out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot. I, and many of you are familiar with the success of the Fisher House program and our hearts were warmed to hear this story. I hope you will help spread it.

By the way... Denzel has a son who is a Marine in Iraq.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!
