00:00:06
he had his Apostles gathered about him
00:00:08
one day and he said to them peace I
00:00:11
leave with you my peace I give you but
00:00:14
the peace which God gives is a gift
00:00:16
which exists even in suffering in one or
00:00:20
even in time of law
00:00:22
[Music]
00:00:24
I covered the war in Iraq I've been to
00:00:26
Afghanistan I covered Hurricane Katrina
00:00:28
I've seen it all but the most memorable
00:00:31
moments of my life have been because of
00:00:33
this story it's the most incredible
00:00:35
story that that I ever got to work on
00:00:38
[Music]
00:00:49
[Music]
00:01:06
[Music]
00:01:15
when you try to unravel the story of how
00:01:19
that happened you cannot get to that
00:01:22
story without learning about the
00:01:25
contribution of William Hansen
00:01:31
foreign
00:01:33
Hansen lived in New York City and when
00:01:36
he retired he went to live in Naples
00:01:39
Florida he's got nightmares PTSD he's
00:01:43
got health problems so he went to his
00:01:45
doctor when he was with his doctor the
00:01:48
doctor asked him if he'd been in the
00:01:50
military so he told them that Not only
00:01:52
was he in the military but he was in A
00:01:54
POW Camp for three years so this doctor
00:01:57
told him that he should go to the
00:01:59
veterans administration so he went to
00:02:01
the VA and as he was in the waiting room
00:02:03
he sees this magazine as Columbia
00:02:06
magazine and there's an article about
00:02:08
father Capone in it and he looked at the
00:02:10
pictures and he's like you know this is
00:02:12
Korea he read the story the in the in
00:02:14
the magazine that there was this father
00:02:16
Hotsy who was investigating
00:02:18
father for sainthood it reminded him
00:02:21
well this is the priest that I knew this
00:02:23
is the priest who helped me yeah since
00:02:25
Jesus magazine and he he takes it into
00:02:28
the the doctor's office and he says hey
00:02:31
I buried this guy and the doctor said so
00:02:33
why aren't you telling him about that
00:02:34
they're investigating his life so he
00:02:37
calls Hotsy contacts Hotsy and they have
00:02:39
a conversation
00:02:41
and hot tea was intrigued enough and
00:02:44
realized that the story that Hanson told
00:02:46
was was really valuable and not only to
00:02:49
the church it was valuable to the
00:02:51
Pentagon
00:02:52
which was trying to figure out how to
00:02:54
find him along with other soldiers from
00:02:55
the Korean War
00:03:06
brother Capen had a unique reputation
00:03:10
amongst chaplains he was known as a
00:03:13
tough guy father would go to the sound
00:03:16
of the guns he would pray with them or
00:03:19
he'd administer the last rites to them
00:03:21
and hold their hands as they're dying
00:03:22
whatever they were going through he went
00:03:24
through too they had utter respect for
00:03:26
him you know as a soldier but also as a
00:03:29
priest someone who would go miles and
00:03:31
miles and miles to the soldiers of the
00:03:34
most remote you know Villages and
00:03:36
outposts to ensure that they received
00:03:39
the sacraments
00:03:41
[Music]
00:03:52
[Music]
00:03:59
thank you
00:04:01
so they were one of the first units that
00:04:03
was sent to the Korean Peninsula after
00:04:05
the North Koreans invaded his unit was
00:04:08
often under attack and so soldiers would
00:04:12
get hit in these battles and everybody's
00:04:15
retreating because there's like
00:04:17
thousands of North Koreans coming at us
00:04:18
he would run straight toward the Enemy
00:04:21
Lines grab these guys with the bullets
00:04:24
kicking up dust around his feet and he
00:04:27
would drag them back and bring them to
00:04:29
safety
00:04:32
there went that priest running across
00:04:34
the battlefield headed for the sound of
00:04:36
the guns and they said father why do you
00:04:39
do that
00:04:40
he said where you hear all that shelling
00:04:42
where you hear that gunfire someone is
00:04:44
wounded someone is dying they need me
00:04:48
[Music]
00:04:57
by most accounts it was probably about
00:04:59
ten thousand to twenty thousand Chinese
00:05:01
versus maybe 600 Americans the men tell
00:05:05
them they look at them and say father
00:05:06
you've got to try and make it out of
00:05:08
here try and get to safety and he says
00:05:10
no my place is here with the wounded
00:05:11
they're encircled by the Chinese on all
00:05:15
sides and kapon is one of the the
00:05:19
soldiers trapped in this pocket and
00:05:22
father literally walked right up to the
00:05:25
Chinese and held up his hands and said
00:05:27
just stop let us surrender here you
00:05:29
don't have to shoot these people there's
00:05:31
20 or so guys saved because of him and
00:05:35
as these captives are being let off by
00:05:39
the Chinese the pawn notices that a
00:05:42
Chinese Soldier nearby is preparing to
00:05:46
shoot and kill a wounded American lying
00:05:51
on the ground that wounded American
00:05:54
is Herbert Miller and that Soldier
00:05:56
pointed his rifle right at Herb's
00:06:00
forehead kapon crosses the road shoves
00:06:03
the Chinese Soldier out of the way and
00:06:06
picks up Sergeant Miller herb said now I
00:06:09
knew he was going to kill us both
00:06:12
and he said I waited for the sound of
00:06:14
the gun and why he didn't turn his rifle
00:06:16
on to Father Capen to this day no one
00:06:19
knows he said the soldier has such a
00:06:22
shocked look on his face he couldn't
00:06:24
believe this man was not afraid to die
00:06:37
[Music]
00:06:43
well the conditions in the prisoner Work
00:06:45
Camp would have been
00:06:48
abysmal the winter was the coldest
00:06:50
winter that they had had on record and
00:06:52
temperatures dropped down to negative 20
00:06:53
negative 30 frostbite and crude
00:06:56
amputations and sicknesses of all kinds
00:07:00
and pneumonia dysentery you know they
00:07:02
were starving in the camp they were
00:07:03
skeletons we were living on crack corn
00:07:06
and know it Millet which is bird seed
00:07:10
men are starving to death
00:07:12
and other men particularly young men
00:07:14
lose hope and give up
00:07:17
[Music]
00:07:19
many of the survivors attributed their
00:07:22
survival to the encouragement they
00:07:24
received from father kapon
00:07:28
thank you
00:07:29
father gave those men everything in
00:07:31
their prison camp
00:07:34
and reminding them that Christ didn't
00:07:36
abandon them on the cross and he wasn't
00:07:39
going to abandon them in this prisoner
00:07:41
of war cast he gave them a will to live
00:07:43
and taught them to keep their faith and
00:07:47
their God and their country at night he
00:07:50
would sneak around and sneak under the
00:07:51
wire Beyond sight of the enemy to find
00:07:54
potatoes or whatever he could find and
00:07:57
bring them back not for himself but to
00:08:00
share he would come in and they said he
00:08:01
would put his hand on their shoulder and
00:08:03
say Joe did you eat anything today did
00:08:06
you get a drink of water and in these
00:08:08
little visits of course even and them
00:08:10
was a prayer and
00:08:12
learned some cases even the rosaries
00:08:15
that really kept the spirit up in the
00:08:17
camp he would always say resist what
00:08:20
they're trying to tell you don't forget
00:08:22
who you are and what what our values are
00:08:35
unfortunately kapon Falls ill and the
00:08:38
Chinese see their chance to eliminate a
00:08:41
leader of the ideological resistance the
00:08:45
Chinese send a squad to take Capone to
00:08:49
the hospital the hospital at pyaktong is
00:08:53
in fact a place where prisoners are left
00:08:56
to die I was there I got to admit uh
00:09:01
tears running down my face and he said
00:09:06
Mike don't don't cry I'm going where I
00:09:09
always wanted to go and when I get there
00:09:12
I'll be saying a prayer for all of you
00:09:16
that
00:09:20
hard to really go back to that
00:09:24
[Music]
00:09:28
father Capron was taken away he was
00:09:30
taken to this Death House three days
00:09:32
later he dies
00:09:34
and
00:09:35
as far as the senior officers are
00:09:38
concerned his body would have been
00:09:40
disposed of just like all of the rest of
00:09:43
the soldiers who had died at that point
00:09:44
which was tossed onto one of these piles
00:09:47
or into this Mass grave
00:09:53
in the early 2000s I got a call from
00:09:56
William Hansen and he told me that he
00:09:59
buried father kapon I thought this can't
00:10:01
can't be true for 40 years 50 years we
00:10:04
had heard that he had been buried in one
00:10:06
of these Mass Graves he told me that he
00:10:10
was with Father Capone when he was in
00:10:12
the death house where father kapon died
00:10:15
and he said that he was assigned to go
00:10:18
out and to bury him this Chinese guard
00:10:20
comes up and says come with me grabs a
00:10:22
couple of other soldiers you need to
00:10:24
bury this body so handsome goes out and
00:10:27
so these three Americans carry him off
00:10:30
and look around and nobody's watching
00:10:32
over us so they with their hands and
00:10:35
sticks and pieces of wood they dig in
00:10:37
the ground they said they got down a
00:10:39
foot and a half
00:10:40
Place father in the grave and it was not
00:10:42
deep enough they covered him best they
00:10:45
could with dirt and then they put rocks
00:10:46
over the top of him so after they
00:10:48
covered father kapon's body with the
00:10:50
rocks to protect him they said a prayer
00:10:52
over him and left and really never knew
00:10:54
what happened to him
00:10:55
[Music]
00:10:59
foreign
00:11:03
[Music]
00:11:05
that when the war was over both sides
00:11:08
exchanged remains and as it turns out uh
00:11:11
that when the Communists were
00:11:13
repurposing the town they must have come
00:11:16
across this pile of rocks realized that
00:11:18
it was a body and and sent it back
00:11:20
that's how
00:11:21
um he actually his remains were actually
00:11:23
sent home
00:11:25
to Hawaii and buried with other unknowns
00:11:28
from the Korean War
00:11:33
it's the first we'd ever heard that Faba
00:11:35
kapon was not buried in one of these
00:11:37
Mass raids
00:11:40
well at the time there was a man named
00:11:42
Phil O'Brien who worked for the
00:11:44
Department of Defense
00:11:46
and it was his job to try to identify
00:11:48
everybody that had been in Camp number
00:11:51
five when I talked to Phil O'Brien about
00:11:53
it he said you know he said all of this
00:11:55
Rings true in fact Hansen told a
00:11:59
credible story
00:12:00
he had been there
00:12:02
the time vouched for it May the location
00:12:06
vouched for it the sick house his
00:12:09
presence vouched for it that was Phil
00:12:11
O'Brien that said you know
00:12:14
that there's a good chance that father
00:12:16
Capone's remains are already here in the
00:12:19
United States
00:12:30
and eventually after the DNA sorted
00:12:34
itself out we had not only a height
00:12:36
match age match Dental match
00:12:39
circumstantial match
00:12:41
clavicle match but a solid hit
00:12:44
mitochondrial DNA match and I believe a
00:12:47
y chromosome match to boot
00:12:50
we did it
00:12:55
[Music]
00:13:05
[Music]
00:13:14
the apostles they didn't have a
00:13:16
catechism when they started to go out to
00:13:19
preach the good news to the whole world
00:13:21
what did they do they went out and told
00:13:23
stories about this man Jesus
00:13:26
who had touched their lives that's the
00:13:28
power you know of Storytelling and
00:13:30
evangelization
00:13:34
the history of the Columbia magazine I
00:13:36
mean it stretches as far as almost since
00:13:39
the beginning of the order and it was
00:13:41
seen as a way for this organization of
00:13:46
Catholic men of the Knights of Columbus
00:13:48
to be united through the written word
00:13:57
providential probably right
00:13:59
um uh that that this gentleman saw the
00:14:03
magazine
00:14:04
was inspired enough to pick it up and to
00:14:07
read the story
00:14:10
I know when I called father Hotsy and
00:14:13
and told him I said you know you're not
00:14:15
going to believe what am I to tell you
00:14:16
and and told him that I just got the
00:14:19
call from the Army and his remains were
00:14:21
identified
00:14:22
and the first thing he said he goes it
00:14:24
was all true it was all true and it was
00:14:27
like yeah he was right
00:14:33
[Music]
00:14:40
good [Music]
00:14:49
thank you
00:14:57
[Music]
