USA: Kentucky Colonel is the highest title of honour bestowed by the State of Kentucky (USA). Commissions for Kentucky Colonels are given by the Governor and the Secretary of State to individuals in recognition of noteworthy accomplishments, contributions to society, remarkable deeds, and outstanding service to the nation. The Governor of Kentucky bestows the honor of a colonel's commission, by issuance of letters patent.
