|A very pretty, old-fashioned church. We enjoyed that!|
After Mass, a few people spoke, among them Ray Kapaun, Fr. Kapaun's nephew. He presented the Medal of Honor to the parish. Afterwards, we went up to see it.

We then went down to the church basement for a ham dinner. The kids actually ate quite a bit! There were a lot of Fr. Kapaun pictures all around the room, which were interesting to look at while we were waiting in line.
The statue below is of Fr. Kapaun assisting a wounded soldier on the march to the prison camp. He had saved this soldier's life by stopping an enemy soldier from executing him because he couldn't walk.
|A nice family photo.|
