The plain-spoken, pipe-smoking, bike-riding chaplain was credited with saving hundreds of soldiers during the Korean War.

His statue stands outside his former parish in tiny Pilsen, Kan.

Thanks, Peter. I was stationed in Korea during Vietnam, when it was a lot safer. My three sons will be getting a copy of Father Kapauns story.
