Peter Facinelli Spends Time With Soldiers & Their Families At Fort Lewis WA Base

Twi Crack Addict has a wonderful post & these great photos from a reader who was at Fort Lewis and got to meet Peter Facinelli. Here's what Becky G has to say:

Friday at 7pm: Peter Facinelli aka Dr. Cullen attended a free screening of Twilight at Fort Lewis Washington base. Theater attendance was free to all military and their dependents. After the screening, Peter did a Q&A for all attending.

Saturday from 9:30am to 10:30pm: Peter stayed to do autographs and pictures. He did this without lunch or dinner he spent quality time with his fans and there was no limit on how many items you wanted signed. He also took pictures with his fans as well, and Peter canceled his flight tonight due to the overwhelming amount of fans that were in attendance; he refused to leave until all fans were able to have their DVDs signed.

Peter said he was given a choice of coming to a DVD signing in Chicago or Fort Lewis , and he chose Fort Lewis as he wanted to thank soldiers and families for their service. I witnessed Peter thank and shake every soldiers hand that came thru the line I commend peter for his time. He is truly the most classy and giving of any of the cast of the Twilight series. I personally stood in line from 11am to 8pm to get a signature and behind me were probably 100 more fans.

Peter, you are amazing to me I am touched, thank you for thinking of us soldiers and family members.

The Twilight Lexicon also has a member that was at Fort Lewis & sent them this lovely photo:

"So Peter Facinelli is in Washington. We got to meet him and have conversations with him. He visited the army military base Fort Lewis. He will be there tomorrow also doing meet and greets, he is such a nice guy and we also got to meet DeeDee Anderson the choreographer of the twilight."
