NEW BRAVOS, TX (WCMH) – An Army veteran in Arizona with a terminal illness has a unique final wish.

Lee Hernandez is currently in hospice care in his home. According to the Arizona Republic, he has continuous strokes that affect his vision and cognitive abilities.

Doctors can do nothing more for him except make him comfortable.

Lee served more than 18 years in the Army, including a tour in Iraq.

Earlier this week, he asked his wife to let him hold his phone, “in case someone calls,” according to a post on the Arizona Veterans Forum.

The link is really fast though!

The Arizona Republic said the best time to call or text is between 4pm and 8pm Eastern time. That is when Hernandez is most alert.

The phone number to reach Hernandez is 210-632-6778.

He is blind, so he wife will read text messages to him.

If this is all a joke, I hope everyone is calling and texting Lindsay Graham on his new number.

Phone number from article is 210-632-6778. Appears to be a cell phone. Could not get through. Hope that means he is receiving many calls.

Sent a text to add to those paying their respects.

Even I sent him a text and I’m fairly new at it——it was delivered,though.

Phew!:-)

Me too. Told him “I’m praying for you”. That is all. His account is probably overwhelmed and crashed by now. Texts from FReepers alone is probably enough to crash his server.

Thank you for the thread, Morgana, and thank you for the info, Karl. I know it’s late, but I just came across this. I called and the voice mailbox is full. :)

Sending prayers ... though I will try again tomorrow, in the best time to reach him.

Mrs. Hernandez, please thank your husband for his service and please let him know there are so many of us who are grateful.

Going to hang up my American flag tomorrow to pay tribute.

When the chips are down, Americans rush in.
