Sweet Eloise: WWII Bomber

If you go into the recruitment center that's off the public parking lot, and then ask to see the bomber and leave your driver's license, they will give you a key to the gate for a closer look!

World War II Bomber: Sweet Eloise

I actually knew Eloise. She worked with me at Richs-Lenox Square in Atlanta. She was a sweet little lady and she told me about her portrait on the plane. Unfortunately she is now gone, but her beautiful smile lives on.
