Tribute to Father Emil Kapaun

Sir Knight Tommy Hasset of Father Henry Miller Assembly 2308 and Sacred Heart Council 14621 created a video tribute to Father Kapaun on the occasion of his being awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. S.K. Tommy says "As we meet in another crossroad in America's History with the bombings in Boston we need to reflect on the life of Fr. Emil J. Kapaun who offered comfort in times of extreme suffering, hardship, and violence. Last week, Fr. Emil Kapaun (April 20, 1916 - May 23, 1951) received the highest military honor from the US - the Medal of Honor for service in battle. The award was bestowed posthumously by President Obama."
