The $13,600 was donated by people all across Japan, with Colonel Shun adding 10% of what each person donated. The people of Japan will never forget Operation Tomadochi when the United States aided and assisted the victims of the 11 March, 2011 earthquake tsunami.
The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels will pass this donation on with additional funds to the Salvation Army in Moore, Oklahoma.
This video represents Colonel Shun's arrival at DFW in Dallas, Texas. When he arrived he was greeted with a television station news camera. Then traveled two days by automobile to Louisville, Kentucky to Kentucky Colonel's office. There he was met by three television stations.
Later that evening the Commanding General of the Kentucky Colonels picked up Colonel Shun and Tony by limousine to enjoy a meal and fifteen year old bourbon at Eddie Merlots in downtown Louisville.
Next day toured the factory and offices where the "Louisville Slugger" is made. There Colonel Shun met Babe Ruth (a likeness) and came across a Samurai helmet in their offices.
To the people of Japan and Colonel Shun: "Domo arigato gozaimasu."
