Hope all is well today. Please share this with full credit to Jerry.
I got an email from original Jefferson Airplane drummer Jerry Peloquin and wanted to share this great story with you:
Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Centre , 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 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
What really upsets us is the question - why do: Britney Spears
Tom Cruise and
other Hollywood fluff
make front page news with their ridiculous
antics and Denzel Washington ‘s charity
doesn’t even make page 3 in the Metro section of
any newspaper except the local newspaper in San Antonio .
Thanks for your time,
Craig The Airplane Man Fenton
