Fr. Kapaun Comes Home


Fr. Emil Kapaun was a military chaplain who served in both World War II and the Korean War. He was imprisoned in the Korean war and died one on of the prison camps there.

After countless years Fr. Kapaun’s remains were finally positively identified. We journeyed with the Diocese of Wichita and his surviving family members to Hawaii to receive the remains and then follow them and document the military transfers back to his home diocese in Wichita, Kansas.

It is truly a privilege to be able to capture this once in a lifetime experience and honor a war hero and a servant of God and finally bring him home at long last..
