Purpose: Fighting Nazis and trying to prove their own innocence of the crime they had been accused of.
Base of Operations: U.S.A.

History: Servicemen (and woman) Bart, Boom and Sis were framed by Malko, a Nazi agent. Discharged from the military, the trio united as the Three Cheers, seeking to find their enemy and clear their good names, using their specialist civilian skills - the muscular former marine sergeant Boom had been a vaudeville escape artist before the war; prior to being a naval lieutenant, Bart had been a chemical scientist; and Sis had been a nurse.
Comments: The Three Cheers continued their quest for exoneration through the five issue run of Our Flag Comics.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
3Xs, Golden Age detectives
