The remains of Father Emil Kapaun, who died in a North Korean POW camp more than 70 years ago, are finally back home in his home state of Kansas. The Kansas News Service reports on why this Catholic priest still means so much to so many.
A funeral Mass for Father Kapaun will be held Wednesday morning followed by a military procession to the cathedral.
(There's an ongoing controversy over how to pronounce the last name of the Medal of Honor recipient. The Wichita school named in the priest's honor is referred to as "KAY-pun Mt. Carmel." But members of the priest's family, including his nephew, pronounce their last name as "Kuh-PAWN," which is what KPR is using.)
