Oklahoma help from Japan

Oklahoma help from Japan

The gentleman in Japan who adds Japanese translations to my videos is a Japanese citizen in Japan.  He is also a Kentucky Colonel, a member of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels.  He is Colonel Shun.

On the 11th of March, 2011 an earthquake tsunami ravaged Japan.  Shun started a donation fund to provide needed items for the victims.  Whatever was donated, he added 10%.  A fellow YouTuber, Kentucky Colonel Hunter learned about Shun’s benevolence and dedication causing him to nominate Shun to be a Kentucky Colonel to the governor of Kentucky.  The Governor commissioned Shun as a Kentucky colonel, thus we have Colonel Shun.

Soon after the tornados struck Moore, Oklahoma the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels sent out a request to Kentucky Colonels to help raise $30,000 to donate to the Salvation Army who was already in Moore, Oklahoma assisting the victims.

In the front of one of my videos where Colonel Shun was placing Japanese translations he added a screen requesting donations from people in Japan assist the people in Oklahoma.  Within four days thousands of dollars started pouring in.   Colonel Shun will be in Texas early June and it is estimated when he arrives he will have around $10,000 to donate to the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels to the people of Oklahoma on behalf of the people of Japan.

Once again Colonel Shun added his 10% to the monies donated.  When he arrives we will go to Louisville, Kentucky to deliver the money.

The people of Japan remember Operation Tomodachi (Operation Friendship) when 20,000 U.S. military personal assisted Japan in the recovery from the 11 March, 2011 earthquake tsunami.  The Japanese say they will never forget what America did for them.  The money pouring into Colonel Shun is one expression of that gratitude. 

To the people of Japan  “Domo arigato gozaimasu.”
