Dr. Bucshon Introduces Bill Designating the Post Office in Dana, Indiana as the Ernest ‘Ernie’ T. Pyle Post Office
Washington, October 18, 2019
“The art of storytelling ensures that history is remembered. It ensures the good times are celebrated and the bad times are never repeated. Ernie Pyle answered the call to tell the stories of America’s fighting men and women on the front lines during World War II. In an age when the average American had limited access to news, Ernie Pyle risked, and ultimately gave his own life to ensure that Americans knew the stories of sacrifice and hardships our fighting men and women endured.
“I am pleased to introduce this bill with the support of the entire Indiana House delegation. Dedicating this U.S. Post Office in the memory of this American hero and Hoosier will help ensure his story and his legacy live on.”
· Ernest “Ernie” Taylor Pyle was born on August 3, 1900, near Dana, Indiana to Maria and William Clyde Pyle.
