    Alec Baldwin to help pay for GIs education

    http://http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17867506

    PHOENIX - Actor Alec Baldwin was so moved by the story of an 18-year-old Army soldier who is scheduled to serve in Iraq, hes going to help pay for her college education after she leaves the military.

    Baldwin was so moved by a March 4 New York Times story about Pvt. Resha Kanes last day with family and friends before going for training to prepare for serving in Iraq that he not his people tracked down Kanes mother at a discount store where she works to offer his assistance, his spokesman said.

    Although Baldwin, 48, has been a vocal critic against the war in Iraq, Hiltzik said supporting the troops who are fighting there is important to the actor.

    He himself tried to find the family, and he was very happy he was able to connect with them, Hiltzik said. Its a great example that people of different backgrounds can agree on the importance of supporting our troops.

    Way to go, Alec!

    I like him because he doesn't like Bush- and he doesn't seem to care what people think

    I can't stand him, but I'm glad he's putting his money to good use.

    I use to like him, not much anymore though. He is, IMO, the better looking Baldwin, well, in his younger years.. He looks a little beat up now..


    This post is my opinion only, and is subject to making me look totally confused

    I guess you're not a Bond fan..?

    Felix Leiter is a character in the James Bond series, usually appearing as Bond's counterpart working for the CIA.

    lol no not really, I've seen the odd Bond movie but couldn't tell you which ones- love Sean Connery though- hes cute for an old guy

    Right, now I know- so is this character well liked?

    Edit to add, seeing as I got no reply I'll take that as a no- lol

    I don't care for him as a person, but I find him absolutely brilliant on 30 Rock.

    This is a nice thing to do.

    Maybe I am mistaken but, doesn't the military help pay for college after your time is up?
