BLACKFOOT â€” Sam Wyrouck flew 35 missions over Germany as a lower ball turret gunner in a B-17 during World War II.
Wyrouck, age 86, said he went into the U.S. Army Air Force after graduating from high school in 1943.
"The reason he made it back," said his wife, Eliose, "was because I prayed for him twice each day."
Wyrouck wrote about an unusual blood drive.
"My crew number 5383 was part of the 351st Bomb Group. During WWII, the Eighth Air Force was the thrust of the air war against Hitler's Germany. It was made up of about 36 bomber groups plus fighter groups.
