I read The Death of Captain Waskow. Very moving. Thanks for sharing Ernie Pyle.
I knew his name but had not read anything he had written.
My best to you,

I found this a few minutes ago...not the fog of war but the fatigue of war experienced by the 'goddam infantry', for lack of a better word, a term of admiration Pyle used to describe the infantrymen who've been on the march for 4 days.

Thank you, Carolyn, within a few hundred words pounded out on his rickety typewriter, Pyle captures moments with prose the equivalent of poetry.

Hi Paul

Thanks for passing on. My father had shared with me a story that Ernie Pyle was on the ship that he was on in WWII. He told me he had a pile of Boston Globe’s his mother apparently sent him. Ernie Pyle saw them and asked he could read them. I think he gave them back to my Dad.
