I first learned of Fr Emil Kapaun when I gave a retreat to the women who were stationed or whose husbands were stationed at the US Army War College in Carlisle, PA. I got a first class tour of the College’s Memorial chapel by Fr. Gregory D’Emma, a longtime Army Chaplain. He was the first person to share with me the life story and military service of Fr Emil Kapaun, whose cause for canonization is being considered.
Chris Stefanik posted this moving tribute video.
Ignatius Press has a book on Fr Kapuan’s life.

Thank you, Pat, for showing me the perfect gift to get my 91-years-young, WWII-vet Dad for Father’s Day!
You’re welcome! Great idea!
