A very remarkable story about a Chaplain from Korea. I would say his actions warrant the MOH, but not being a Catholic I couldn't comment on sainthood. Regardless, this is a great story and one I'd hope every military chaplain knows by heart.
US Army Chaplain Father Emil Kapaun stole, suffered and sacrificed his life for his fellow soldiers in a Korean prison camp. Six decades after his death, he is being considered for the Congressional Medal of Honor - and sainthood.
