Colonel Shun, a new Kentucky Colonel in Japan

Through the recommendation of Kentucky Colonel Hunter (YouTube ID “MadBadVoodo”), the governor of Kentucky Steven L. Beshear commissioned a new Kentucky Colonel, this one in Japan being Shun, or now Colonel Shun.

To be commissioned Kentucky Colonel is a prestigious honor among previous Kentucky Colonels. Such as: Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken – KFC. Sir Winston Churchill of the United Kingdom, Prime Minister during World War Two, also a Kentucky Colonel. The 33rd president (two terms 1981 – 1989) of the United States of America, President Ronald Reagan a Kentucky Colonel.

Colonel Shun is among good company as a Kentucky Colonel. Colonel Hunter recommended Colonel Shun, for his outstanding and unselfish work in the aftermath of the earthquake / tsunami that hit Japan on 11 March 2011. Colonel Shun established a relief fund for the victims of that day. Most charities deduct a small percentage as administrative. Colonel Shun ADDED 10% to every donation. If $100 was donated, Colonel Shun turned it to $110. The Colonel then purchased emergency supplies and personally drove them in the devastated region.

His unselfish actions exemplified the essence of a Kentucky Colonel and Colonel Hunter and the governor of Kentucky recognized it.

Congratulation Kentucky Colonel Shun!
