To the Editor:

While the mainstream media hasn't reported this heart warming, generous and patriotic act, the story must be made known to as many as possible. Denzel, while visiting the Brooks Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, to cheer the severely wounded Army troops there, asked what this type of facility would cost to build, then when told, promptly presented the Center with a check for the full amount.

Now compare this noble act to the large number of Hollywood celebreties who get generous press coverage condemning our troops and spouting foolish platitudes about what others should be doing and hatefully condeming those with different views.

Thank God for Denzel and hopefully his example will motivate many to do their share to help those in need and to be better Americans.
