NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas -- A dying Army veteran in New Braunfels has one last request, and anyone can help.

• Number to call: 210-632-6778

Lee Hernandez, 47, who is under hospice care at his home in New Braunfels, is simply asking for someone to talk to. His last wish was posted on a Facebook veterans forum.

Hernandez's wife said he recently asked her to hold his phone for him, "in case someone calls."

After two hours, and no phone calls, Hernandez said to his wife: "I guess no one wants to talk to me".

Hernandez has lost his vision but his wife reads the text messages out loud to him.  Anyone who wants to brighten his day can simply pick up the phone, the number is 210-632-6778.
