Legendary Reporter Ernie Pyle and the 70th Anniversary of D-Day

In Association News On

Missouri Press Association member newspapers can mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion in northern France with columns written by legendary reporter Ernie Pyle.

At the same time, they’ll be promoting donations to the Ernie Pyle World War II Museum in his hometown of Dana, Ind. The museum features Pyle’s birth home and adjacent Quonset huts containing memorabilia and multimedia presentations.

Pyle earned the Pulitzer Prize for war coverage. Pyle wrote for the Scripps Howard News Service during the war and was killed as the war ended on a small island northwest of Okinawa in April 1945.

To be a part of this national tribute to Pyle and the generation he chronicled, individuals can go to www.erniepyle.org and make a donation. Donors can receive a special collector’s edition of the documentary "G.I. Joe: The story of Ernie Pyle;" a poster about the movie signed by its producer, Marino Amoruso; or a coffee table book, "Ernie Pyle’s War: In Words and Pictures."
