Dying Army veteran's last wish: a call from you

Share

The 47-year-old has had three brain surgeries, but doctors have not been able to find the cause for his illness. She got some help from a member of an Arizona veterans group on Facebook, Michelle Fawbush, whose July 11 post struck a chord with the community. They say there is nothing money can do to ameliorate his condition, though they want him to feel as comfortable as possible.

"I guess no one wants to talk to me", said the 47-year-old veteran, who served 18½ years in the Army including a tour in Iraq.

Voice or text, it doesn't matter which - he just wants to know that people care.

One day he asked her to hold onto his phone - "in case someone calls", he said. The best way to do that, according to the veteran's wife, Ernestine, is with phone calls and text messages. "(Lee's) speech is not very well, so many people don't take much interest or want to talk to him", Ernestine told the news outlet. When the phone never rang, Hernandez became despondent.

IS leader in Afghanistan killed in raid: Pentagon
Sayed's reported death makes him the third Isis leader in Afghanistan to be killed by allied forces in the past twelve months. The raid on 11 July also resulted in the deaths of other IS members, the Pentagon said in a statement on Friday.

So Ernestine Hernandez set out to prove her husband wrong.

So she reached out to Caregivers of Wounded Warriors, who started spreading word about Lee Hernandez's last wish. She reads text messages and cards to Lee, who is blind, and says he loves to listen to the outpouring of support. Though she said he hit "rock bottom" a year ago, he has "beaten the odds and his strong will keeps him going". Ernestine Hernandez said the best time to make contact is during the late afternoon or early evening, Central Daylight Time, the Republic reported.

"Thank you, everyone, for your calls and support".

If you'd like to reach out to Hernandez, give a call or text to 210-632-6778. "I am trying to give him the best life I am able to with the help of my mom". Ernestine said, "The experience is very painful, but I wouldn't have it any other way". A post explaining Hernandez's story has been shared more than 600 times since it was orignally shared on Tuesday.
