The PM ordered the cash donation to military charity Fisher House to mark tonight’s annual Sun Military Awards.
It comes from a £35million pot of fines slapped on banks for the Libor rate-fix scandal.
All the cash is being doled out to military causes to help the traumatised or the needy.
The PM’s “Heroes Committee” of senior ministers and charity officials is deciding who will share the remaining £34million.
Mr Cameron told The Sun: “It took about two minutes for the Chancellor and I to decide what we wanted to do with the money from bankers who have been misbehaving. We wanted to know what more we could do for the wonderful people who serve our country.”
"Holidays, birthdays & anniversaries have been celebrated with tears and smiles with people who truly understand what the other person is experiencing."
