A Medal from the Japanese Emperor
by Anthony T. Tu
Preface by A.T. Tu
In 2009, I was fortunate enough to unexpectedly receive a medal from the Japanese Emperor, for my contribution on the Development of Crisis and Risk management in Japan. The medal was a result of the effort of many Japanese friends, especially from my toxicology colleagues who thought I deserved such a great honor. I owe many thanks to Dr. Ikuo Yamamoto and Dr. Yasuharu Akagi who really promoted the process of the medal awarding to the Japanese government. I think this is the only time I will receive such an honor, and there is no second chance for receiving another medal. Therefore, I decided to make a small book to commemorate such a historical occasion for me, and to be able to share my happiness with my friends.
For helping me with this booklet, I would like to give thanks to Prof.
Chuchang Chiu, an instructor of Chinese, and Miss Jasmine Olson, my secretary.
I am also grateful for the Forewords that were written and contributed by Mr. Michael F. Bennet, U.S. Senator; David R. Franz, Former Commander of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease, and Michael F. Campbell, Former Commander of the U.S. Marine Corps,
Chemical Biological Incident Response Force.
