On March 16, 2017, Sasakawa USA’s Japan-US Military Program (JUMP) hosted its Second Annual dinner, featuring keynote speaker Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Michael Richardson. This year’s dinner celebrated both the continued growth of the JUMP Program and the future of the U.S.-Japan alliance.
The Japan U.S. Military Program (JUMP) is a collaborative effort between Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, the Embassy of Japan in the United States, and the National Association of Japan-America Societies. The program was launched in April 2015 and connects past and present service members, families, and government civilians who have served in Japan. Click here to join!
