Ernie Pyle


Recommended Posts

I read that this morning..and saw the picture. :( Someone had put a hat in his hands. Put his hands together on top of his stomach...and it looked like he was sleeping....It moved me greatly. yeah..that's the same I saw redrum, I just clicked your link.... :'(

It really brought a lump to my throat and made me feel faint for awhile reading the account of his death.....chilling, stark and just so sad...

I wont post the picture...it's peaceful, yet disturbing..and many may not wish to see it.

I see you chose not to post it either. I think it's best left to the individual to look, if they'd like to....

Tragic...thanks for posting redrum...

Still after all these years.....R.I.P. Ernie....

Ernie Pyle was definitely one of the most tremendous personalities of World War II, as well as 20th-century journalism. Whether he had a real inkling of his demise or merely thought, like many a seasoned fighting man, that the percentages may catch up eventually. I saw the image the other day, and just as many such images, it was halting. He was one for the books.
