This is from an email sent to me by a vet. I seldom post things of this sort not (not documented), but the pictures are hard to dispute. Denzel Washington grew up about 20 minutes from my home in Mount Vernon, NY and this is consistent with what I know about him.

Don’t know whether you heard about this but Denzel Washington and his family visited the troups at Brooks Army Medical Center, in San Antonio, Texas (BAMC)  the other day. This is where soldiers that have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the States, especially burn victims.  They have 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 completely 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.  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 I have is why does Alec Baldwin, Madonna, Sean Penn and other Hollywood types make front page news with their anti-everything America crap and this doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro section of any newspaper

…except the base newspaper in San Antonio

DES MOINES — A Polk County, Iowa, civil jury ruled late Wednesday that the state of Iowa could no longer keep Loren Huss in custody. Less than an hour later, Huss walked out of the Polk County Jail a free man, and drove away with family members.Huss was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the brutal 1986 killing of his girlfriend, Marilyn Sheets. Huss was accused of sexually abusing Sheets, and then murdering her. He also disfigured the woman’s body by, among other things, gouging out her eyes and biting off her nose.

After many years of legal maneuvering, a civil jury wound up with the case this month. Huss argued that he was mentally ill at the time of the murder, and believed that Sheets was the devil. He says he’s recovered from his illness and has had no relapses in many years.
