Longview native Puett Wilcox joined the Air Force at the age of eighteen. On his second mission in Europe as a ball turret gunner during World War Two, Puett's plane was shot down and he was wounded.
Just before takeoff, he saw a vision of Jesus indicating that the plane would crash but he would survive. It was a vision that would sustain him through the deadly crash and his year as a prisoner of war.
Wilcox went on to fly 50 missions over Korea during the Korean War and to serve in the Air Force 25 years.
