A well-known wartime correspondent, Ernie Pyle described World War II from the view of a foxhole on the front lines. On April 18, 1945, he was killed on a tiny island off Okinawa by enemy fire.
 
Ernie Pyle (1900-1945)
Journalist
Born near Dana, Indiana, Pyle became one of the best-known reporters in America with his syndicated column covering World War II. Sensitive, insightful, and humorous, Pyle brought the common man’s war to millions of Americans, telling how the nation’s young men lived, and sometimes died, as soldiers. In 1944, Pyle won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism. He traveled with U.S. troops on nearly every front in Africa and Europe, and then went to the Pacific theater. He was killed by a Japanese machine gunner on April 18, 1945, during the battle for Okinawa.
