After some time Hernandez commented to his wife "no one wants to talk to me".

Hernandez served 18 years in the United States Army with a tour in Iraq. His "speech is not very well, so many people didn't take much interest or want to talk to him".

Lee's simple request for a phone call is a small request that can help ease the pain of a veteran who has given so much to protect our country.

"It broke my heart", said Ernestine.

He soon was receiving an outpouring of prayers, phone calls and uplifting text messages that Ernestine read to him.

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

Army veteran Lee Hernandez, 47, suffers from a debilitating stroke condition that has been deemed terminal after three brain surgeries were unable to pinpoint the cause.

4.2 and 3.8 earthquakes rattle Oklahoma, Kansas
Oklahoma has experienced a rash of earthquakes in the past few years following a surge of oil and gas production in the state. Another natural disaster with a magnitude of 3.8 was recorded near Stroud at 9:04 a.m., and a 3.7 occurred at 9:17 a.m.

That is, until she contacted Caregivers of Wounded Warriors. "Please let Lee know that the veterans in Arizona are thinking of him!"

Since then, people have reached out to him.

"They are an excellent support group of wives and ladies who know the struggles of what we go through", Ernestine said about the supporting group for veterans and added that thanks to that "a lot of people call to pray with him". Though she said he hit "rock bottom" a year ago, he has "beaten the odds and his strong will keeps him going". "I am trying to give him the best life I am able to with the help of my mom".

Anyone wanting to lift Lee's spirits is asked to call between the hours of 2 p.m.to 6 p.m.

If you would like to do your small part to make a world of difference for this man, send Lee Hernandez and his wife a text message at 210-632-6778.

"The experience is very painful, but I wouldn't have it any other way", she said.
