The family of Lee Hernandez, a terminally ill US Army Veteran, requests the attendance and participation of the San Antonio Patriot Guard Riders in a visitation and drive by procession at the family's residence (location undisclosed at this time, issued to RC) and enjoy a BBQ with Lee and his friends.
Lee is terminally ill and recently blinded by his illness as noted by his wife, Ernestine Hernandez:
"Lee Hernandez, who is under hospice care at his home in New Braunfels, Texas, has continuous strokes that have affected his vision and cognitive abilities. The 47-year-old’s body is deteriorating despite three brain surgeries, according to his wife, Ernestine Hernandez. Doctors have not been able to pinpoint a cause for Lee’s illness, and said there is nothing more they can do but make him comfortable."
