    My dad forwarded this to me. Since there are so many threads on celebrities who are pricks, I figured this would be a welcome change.

    Remember this next time you walk up to
    the ticket window of your local movie
    theater with $10 in your hand.
    The Media missed this one!

    Denzel Washington at 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 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 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 checkbook 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 is, 'Why do:
    Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan,
    Paris Hilton,Tom Cruise
    and other Hollywood fluff
    make front page news with their ridiculous antics, while
    Denzel Washington's Patriotism doesn't even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the
    local newspaper in San Antonio?'

    A true American and friend to all in uniform!

    Snopes says it's partly true from 2004

    Yes he did visit the hospital
    NO he didn't pay for a building, but he has done good charity work w LARGE donations.
