Emil Kapaun's remains have been identified. He died in a prison camp during the Korean War and buried in a mass grave with other prisoners in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu, Hawaii, around 1956. His identity was confirmed thanks to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.
Captain Kapaun served as a chaplain in World War II and the Korean War. His deeds are heroic. So many testimonies of his bravery and self-sacrifice have earned him the highest honors the USA can award anyone--the Congressional Medal of Honor. His Catholic religion has awarded him the first step to attaining sainthood--Servant of God.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
