The  Media (Accidently?) Missed this one!!!!


The  troops overseas would like you to send it to everybody you know.  


Denzel Washington, and Brooks Army Medical Center
Don’t  know whether you heard about this but
Denzel  Washington
and his family visited

the troops at  Brook 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 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 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:
Brad Pitt

Madonna,
 
Tom Cruise
and
Other Hollywood fluff  

Make  front page news with their ridiculous antics and Denzel Washington’s Patriotism
 doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper except the local newspaper in San Antonio.

Now I know not to boycott his movies (along w/Clint) – Good man!

Denzell has to do this on the down-low and probably didn’t ask for any PR (unlike most Hollyweird fools)…He wants to make sure he works again.

I knew there was a reason I still watched his movies, my list has gotten very short in the last 2 years…. I have boycotted all of the channels except Fox… If Fox does not own it, I do not watch it….
If a hollywood idiot came out with their political view and I did not agree with it, I stopped going to see their movies… Seems I am not the only one doing this, good to know that I am not alone…

I, too, have given up going to the movie houses and refuse to support (by way of a $14 ticket) the hollywood elite. I still have the occassional bout of George Clooney withdrawal so I take an extra dose of Bruce Willis and find myself feeling much better.
