Father Kapaun died in a prison camp May 23, 1951, at 35 years of age. He was known for risking his life on the battlefield during the Korean War to minister to troops on the front lines. He was taken as a prisoner of war in November 1950; as a POW he suffered from pneumonia and a blood clot in his leg. He continued to serve fellow prisoners until his death.
