The Ernie Pyle Legacy Foundation will commemorate National Ernie Pyle Day in August with a celebration in Franklin Hall.
The U.S. Senate agreed to Senate Res. 345 in December, designating Aug. 3, 2018, as National Ernie Pyle Day. Sens. Todd Young and Joe Donnelly, both of Indiana, co-sponsored the bill.
The event will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Presidents Hall and at the Ernie Pyle statue outside of Franklin Hall.
