Thumbs up Denzel Washington is the MAN! - November 12, 2007, 01:50 PM

I couldn't change the font or colors of most of this, but my cousin who is one of the attending doc's @ Brook, sent me this, this AM. So, I just copied and pasted it. The format, and colors are that of my email, I apologize.

Don't know whether you heard about this
but
Denzel Washington and his family visited
the troops at Brook Army Medical Center , here
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 Washingtonwas 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.




My cousin is the one kneeling behind Denzel's Left shoulder.
Honestly, how many other people whether they be celebrities or well-off people would do this?

I don't know what your cousin sent you. But what you pasted is an EXACT REPLICA of a chain email released into the wild back in like '05.

How I can find your cousins email that he sent you this morning on snopes from a couple of years back is beyond me.

Well, I guess it would seem that anyone that reads Snopes, believes exactly what is put on their site as the HOLY word.

WV...supposedly Denzel did make a sizable donation but the story of him pulling out his checkbook is supposed to be a bit of a fabrication. Don't get me wrong...Denzel is still the man and supposedly American Gangster is a great movie. Going to check it out this week.

You're right. You should believe anything that hits your inbox instead!

Denzel was there apparently in Dec 2004. He toured the facility and took part in a ceremony. He did donate a "sizeable" contribution several months later...not pull out his checkbook on the spot as the email states. Although the amount is never publicized, it has been reported that the amount did not cover the total cost of a fisher house but was the largest single donation they have ever received.

Its an old story, bro. One in which the truth was stretched a little to play on ones emotions.

Denzel is still a class act.

I cant see the photos of what you had in your email. They look like they come from a comcast email account and I cant get to them. Even the links to the images puts me to a comcast email system.

Not that I dont believe you, but its almost word for word what you wrote in your email and what is on snopes from 2004.

But he (Denzel) is the man if he keeps going back there year after year and keeps pulling out his checkbook (which some claim he never has) and writes a check to create a new Fisher House every year. Hell, if I was BMAC, I would invite him to come check out the place every month.

I can't see the pictures either. Are they the same photos as these posted in 2006?

If you don't believe snopes, you can read about it on the fisher house website:

http://www.fisherhouse.org/inTheNews...0_05_NRO.shtml

http://www.fisherhouse.org/inTheNews...09_17_SH.shtml

http://www.fisherhouse.org/inTheNews...04_13_SS.shtml

Maybe he went back and wrote a check because of the story.

Regardless, I give him a ton a credit for his donation and support, even if the story got blown out of proportion.
