Most of the fact-finding organizations - Truthorfiction.com, Snopes.com and the urban legends division of the information website About.com - and an article in The Dallas Morning News, all say the same thing: Partly true, partly false.
Washington did visit the Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio in December 2004, the fact-finding groups say, and took part in a ceremony awarding several Purple Hearts.
He also toured the center's Fisher House, which provides a no-cost or low-cost "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization, according to the Fisher House website.

"He seldom carries a checkbook," said Fisher House President David Coker.
James Weiskopf, vice president of communications at the foundation, speculated to Emery what led to the confusion. Shortly after Washington's pledge, there was an announcement that a new $1.5 million Fisher House was going to be built. People probably just assumed the new house was the result of Washington's donation.

Weiskopf would say only that the donation was one of the largest in the organization's history, Truthorfiction.com reported. Washington also agreed to serve on the Fisher House board of trustees, he said.
Snopes.com points out Washington's reputation for philanthropy. Fact Check Actor didn dramatically whip out checkbook but was generous...
