    Apparently Denzel Washington went to Texas

    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 check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot.

    He did that quite a while ago. I remember reading about it back when John first deployed last January.

    Denzel + Bruce Willis > any other two actors in Hollywood.

    Not exactly tru but only the on the spot part, he did still donate enough to build another facility so with that, fuckin :werd: to Ranger's comments. Anybody who will actually make a REAL comitment like that to ACTUALLY help is Aces in my book.

    Next to Tom Hanks, Denzel has got to be the best actor in Hollywood.

    So much energy!

    Not to take anything away from Ranger, because there are no words to describe Bruce Willis in Tears of the Sun.
