American Writers: Ernie Pyle
... in the Pacific Ocean on the Island of Iwo Jima; during the Okinawa campaign Ernie Pyle, War Correspondent, visited the nearby island of Ie Shima, where he was killed at the age of 44 by Japanese machine-gun fire.  Click here to read an interesting story about a US Pilot who thought that he was the one that Killed Ernie Pyle.

Just recently I found out that the real name of Iwo Jima is actually Iwo To.  The natives there are requesting that the name should be returned to the original Iwo To since it was mistakenly named Iwo Jima by a Japanese officer in WW2 and that name stuck to this very same day.
