Patty Andrews…RIP

If you ever listened to your grandparents’ music, chances are you heard the Andrews Sisters. Their music marks the World War II era with songs like Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (of Company B).  They performed with Bing Crosby and Glenn Miller and traveled overseas to entertain our troops.

The last remaining sister, Patty Andrews, 94, has died in Los Angeles, but  the women's musical legacy remains.
