Documentary on Father Kapaun to air tonight on KPTS

"The Miracle of Father Kapaun," a documentary by Eagle photojournalist Travis Heying, will air tonight at 7 on KPTS, Channel 8 in Wichita.

The 45-minute documentary tells the story of Father Emil Kapaun, an Army chaplain from Pilsen. His actions on behalf of his fellow soldiers in a Korean War prisoner of war camp have earned him a recommendation for the Medal of Honor. The Vatican also is investigating Kapaun's life for possible sainthood.

The video accompanied an eight-part series on Kapaun The Eagle published last December. To read the series or watch trailers for the documentary, go to kansas.com/kapaun.
