小编摘要:日前,美国阿拉巴马养老院举办了一场选美大赛,双目失明的百岁二战女兵Felma Schrimshire夺得桂冠。

 导读: “我自己去参军了。当时女军人很少。一年后我就回来了,这让我丈夫很欣慰。”说起往事,美国百岁二战女兵Felma Schrimshire神采奕奕。年轻时就巾帼不让须眉,老太太现百岁高龄了,又选美夺魁,更让人心生敬佩。

       

Felma Schrimshire, competing under the stage name Ms. Andalusia Manor, was crowned Ms. Alabama Nursing Home this week, beating nine other finalists.

"It was wonderful!" Mrs Schrimshire told oanow.com. "Everybody has just been so nice and so sweet and caring. It's just great. I don't know any other way to express it."

Mrs Schrimshire served in the surgeon's office during the war, according to National Public Radio.

"I was going into the Army myself," said the widow, whose husband's sight was too poor to join at the time. "Not many women were in the army back then, so much to my husband's relief, I got out after one year."

After her husband's death, she moved to Alabama. She now lives with her sister at Andalusia Manor, where she spends her time studying the Bible.

But it was her friendliness and warmth that won her the title, John Matson of the Alabama Nursing Home Association said.

"She really waved at the audience, saluted all three sections of the audience. She had a very lively presence on stage, and I think that won over the judges and the crowd as well," he said.
