The Andrew Sisters We are the Andrews Sisters, our names are LaVerne Sophia, Maxine Angelyn, and Patricia Marie.

But we didn't stop our career then LaVerne was replaced by a singer, Joyce DeYoung. But we still miss LaVerne dearly. All about Us! Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy One our songs that we sang was a hit! It soon became the "theme song" of WWII. That song won an Oscar for best song! Patty was so excited when we won it! WWII During the start of the war when everyone was preparing we were signed up to provide entertainment. This is because everyone was worried about the war and we provided escape from their worries.
We traveled to a lot of places during the war and entertained many brave soldiers that served our country. It was such a wonderful experience, and we will never forget it or take it for granted. Our Films Argentine Nights 1940 1942 In the Navy
