Alec Baldwin commits to scholarship for Army soldier

Associated Press (Amanda Lee Myers):
Actor Alec Baldwin was so moved by the story of an 18-year-old Army soldier who is scheduled to serve in Iraq, he's 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 Kane's last day with family and friends before going for training to prepare for serving in Iraq that he — not his people — tracked down Kane's mother at a discount store where she works to offer his assistance, his spokesman said.

I was recently discussing Baldwin's scene in Glengarry Glen Ross.

Baldwin's character visits the sales team to make a motivational speech. It includes a couple memorable lines.

"A, 'Always', B, 'be', 'C', 'closing'."

"There is no third prize. Third prize is you're fired."

WARNING: The scene includes the f-word and a slur against homosexuals.
