(Lynn, IN)--A Randolph County hero is having a portion of U.S. 27 named in his honor more than 45 years after his death in combat.  Charles Edwin Engle was from the tiny town of Carlos.  He was a pilot in Vietnam.  Engle was trying to help rescue a downed aircraft.  When that aircraft sustained enemy fire, Engle dove his plane between the gunners and the helicopter, which allowed it to break free.  But, it cost Engle his life.  A section of 27 near Lynn will be renamed the Charles Edwin Engle Memorial Mile.
