Wiesbaden, Germany, May, 1961: The Andrews Sisters — Maxene, Patty and LaVerne, left to right — mug for the camera as they prepare for a series of shows at U.S. bases in Germany, followed by an eight-week tour of England. The sisters were performing before military audiences for the first time since World War II, when they were the nation's top female group with such hits as "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy."
