RSVP - Ernie Pyle

Ernie Pyle is best known for his stories about ordinary “dogface” infantry American soldiers from a first person perspective during World War II. His fascinating story will be told in a dramatic performance by Actor Arnold Weiss. Pyle went to Europe in 1942 as a war correspondent for Scripps-Howard newspapers to cover the Battle of Britain. He went to North Africa in later 1942 where he spent time with the troops in the North African Campaign, the Italian campaign, and the Normandy landings. He returned to the U.S. in 1943 to recover from combat stress. Pyle traveled to the Asiatic-Pacifc Theater in January 1945. He covered the invasion of Okinawa and was killed in April 1945 while in the Pacific. He is buried in the National Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu.
