Subject: 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 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.
