According to the Korean War Veterans Ass’n., Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien, Archbishop for the Military Services, USA, Washington, DC, sent a letter to the Army’s Senior Decorations Board at the Pentagon recommending that Fr. Kapaun be awarded the MOH.
Eight years to decide.
If memory serves, it took Bill Clinton about 10 minutes (and who knows how much money?) to decide on the MOH for Senator Inouye.
Well said...From what I’ve read about Fr. Kapaun it’s been a lengthly effort by many and a well deserved one that politics has not entered into.
