Father Emil Kapaun (center) poses for a picture with members of his congregation after celebrating his first Mass as a priest at St. John Nepomucene Church in Pilsen, Kan., in 1940. Kapaun would go on to serve as a U.S. Army chaplain, both in World War II and the Korean War, where his selflessness and dedication would endear him to his fellow Soldiers as a "Soldier's chaplain."
