Father Vincent Capodanno was a chaplain with the US Marines in Vietnam and a Maryknoll priest. As Tom and Noëlle Crowe tell us in this very personal episode, he was known as the Grunt Padre for how he served his Marines. His ultimate sacrifice on the battlefield led to him receiving the Medal of Honor and being placed on the path to canonization.
