Kentucky Colonels in the Order

Many of the officers of the Order are Kentucky Colonels and so use the honorific 'colonel' in their titles.

The award of a Kentucky Colonel is given by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, USA. It is made by the Governor of Kentucky in recognition of services to the community, and as such should be used with pride by all holders.

The use of the term 'colonel' originated in military usage. However, it should be stressed that it does not denote that the holder has the military rank of Colonel in the US or other armed service.
