dsc_0499On the occasion of the Japan Self Defense Forces 62nd anniversary, Sasakawa USA’s Japan-US Military Program (JUMP) was excited to join with the Embassy of Japan to celebrate the accomplishments both countries have achieved together over the past year. The reception, hosted for members of the U.S. defense community in industry, academia, and government, was held at the Ambassador’s Residence in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, October 27.

The Honorable Ken-Ichiro Sasae, Ambassador of Japan to the U.S (pictured at right),  introduced the JUMP Program as a still new but growing initiative that brings together those who have served in Japan. Members of the JUMP team were present to sign up new members and explain the program to hundreds of defense experts who attended the celebration.
