The Lewisville Fire Department got a personal "thank you" from John Travolta for its fund-raising campaign to help victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York.
"What happened in New York represented what every single fireman goes through every day. They're willing to put their lives before everybody else, and they're the bravest individuals in the world. To raise the money these guys have raised for the wives and children of the rescue workers in New York is just an unbelievable thing," Travolta said.
He donned a red firefighter's hat and held both thumbs up, to cheers from the firefighters and dozens of others who gathered at the main fire station in Lewisville.
Lewisville is a suburb in far northwest Dallas. Travolta was in the Dallas area to promote his new film, "Domestic Disturbance."
