Dying Army veteran asks for phone calls, text messages

Two hours later, he was despondent.

47-year old, Lee Hernandez served for 18 years and a half in the army and spent a lot of time in Iraq. "(Lee's) speech is not very well, so many people didn't take much interest or want to talk to him". She shared Hernanez's dying wish with a number of Veteran communities, and eventually his number made its way to the Arizona Veterans Forum's Facebook page.

Ever since Fawbush's Facebook post, Hernandez's phone has been ringing nonstop, Fawbush told the Arizona Republic.

Ernestine said she reads the messages and cards out loud to Hernandez, which helps to lift his spirits, AZCentral reported.

Some posted screenshots of reactions they had gotten to their text messages to Lee Hernandez.

Hernandez, who lives with his wife, Ernestine Hernandez, in New Braunfels, Texas, has had three brain surgeries, but still has continuous strokes that have affected his vision and cognitive abilities, according to the Arizona Central.

She got in contact with "Caregivers of Wounded Warriors" and requested they help spread her husband's wish. Many come from veterans and people who want to let him know he is not alone. "It really uplifts him".

Ernestine discovered that the thing that brightens Lee's day the most is to hear from other people.

Ernestine wants people to continue to call or text Lee. Though she said he hit "rock bottom" a year ago, he has "beaten the odds and his strong will keeps him going".

They request that supporters call between 2-6 p.m., and that if they don't answer it's because Hernandez is in pain.

If you'd like to reach out to Hernandez, give a call or text to 210-632-6778.

Ernestine says that if he doesn't respond, it's simply because he's in too much pain.
