Having grown up on a Kansas farm, Fr. Emil Kapaun’s courage and work ethic were second-to-none. While serving during the Korean War, the popular Army chaplain traveled by jeep and bike to minister to his “boys.” When he was captured and taken to a North Korean prison, Kapaun shared his food, cared for the wounded, and led secret prayer services. He died from mistreatment a few months later, but his legacy lived on. In 2013 Fr. Kapaun was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest military award for bravery.
