Mission Statement

The Ernie Pyle Legacy Foundation is established for the purpose of actively upholding and fostering ongoing recognition of the distinct contributions of war correspondent Ernie Pyle to the military, the families of soldiers who were touched by his reporting and professional journalists.

The foundation will endeavor to create public awareness of the journalistic accomplishments of Ernie Pyle among generations of Americans who did not benefit from his reporting during that period of global conflict and to provide opportunities for an ongoing dialogue among working journalists, students and the public at large.
