Triple Oak Leaf Clusters for Sargeant Dudley

Detroit Free Press, January 30, 1945
From Eloise attendant to top turret gunner in WWII George J. Dudley made his way rapidly across the globe from small town Gallatia to Europe. How he made it to Eloise in between graduation and the military is probably more of the mystery. One that I won't pursue but it is quite interesting that he ended up 500 miles from his home to work at Eloise. Whether you're for or against war you have to acknowledge the courage of a 20-year-old kid flying suicide bombing missions in a world war.
