Denzel Washington Gives Back to Army Troops.

[nggallery id=54]

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. Be sure to share this BCG story with someone you know and way to Give Back Denzel!

    I was a US Marine stationed in Iraq from 2005 to 2006.  I’ve always enjoyed Denzel Washington’s acting, but this act shows his true compassion as a great human being.  Bless you and your family Mr. Washington.
