Emil Kapaun

 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.
