One Family Occupation Army—3 Sisters Overseas with WAC (l. to r.) Sergeants Elizabeth Kuzmech, Mary Hampton, and Sophie Kuzmech

Believed to be the only three sisters overseas with the military forces, three former Brookhaven sisters—Sergeants Mary Hampton and Sophie and Elizabeth Kuzmech—recently celebrated their first year in Frankfurt, Germany.

The first three sisters to enlist together, the girls joined the Women's Army corps about a year and a half ago and were stationed in this country until a year ago.  Then all three signed up for overseas duty.

Recently Sgt. May Hampton and Sgt. Elizabeth Kuzmech flew to this country for a short furlough on a plane with General Omar Bradley, who has just completed a tour of Europe.  The sisters visited their parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Kuzmech, in Saratoga, Pa., and while there were visited by Mrs. Warren Brady of East Patchogue.

The girls had many facts of interest to relate about life in Frankfurt, stating that the poverty and bleakness are difficult for Americans to believe on first sight.  American cigarettes are at a premium and bring the most astounding valuables and services, they said.  One curious fact they mentioned was that Germans do not appear to bear any resentment toward the presence of Americans in Germany.  Acording to the girls, the Germans are courteous and respectful.

Sgt. Hampton will appear in the motion picture, "Berlin Express," as a WAC with Merle Oberon.  The picture is expected to be released soon.
