This original copy of the Saturday Evening Post features an article titled, The Ordeal of Chaplain Kapaun, by Kapaun's fellow prisoner-of-war Mike Dowe. After he was repatriated, Dowe championed the effort to award Kapaun with the Medal of Honor. The story published by Dowe chronicles the service and sacrifice of Chaplain Kapaun during his prison camp internment, when Kapaun acted as a spiritual leader to hundreds of men.
