Bill aims to name post office after Ernie PyleDecember 2, 2019
By The Associated Press
DANA — Republican U.S. Sens. Todd Young and Mike Braun have introduced legislation to rename the post office in Dana, Indiana, after Ernie Pyle, the celebrated war correspondent who was born near the western Indiana town.
Pyle was reporting on the U.S. Army’s 305th Infantry Regiment when he was killed on April 18, 1945, on the Japanese island of le Shima.
Braun said last week that “Ernie Pyle is an American hero who gave his life in World War II and it’s only fitting to name the post office in Dana, Indiana after him.”
After studying journalism at Indiana University, Pyle won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on World War II.
The bill was introduced last week.
