While there are many ways to foster the U.S.-Japan relations, the JUMP event is one of the most effective and meaningful ways to strengthen the friendships, especially in this proud military community. Those who have been stationed in Japan often promote Japanese culture by sharing their experiences in Japan with their neighbors and friends upon their return to the U.S. This JUMP event will honor those who have served in Japan and is for all who are interested in Japan, regardless of whether or not they are in the military.
The U.S. and Japan military relation goes beyond the alliance, and the stories of Operation Tomodachi always touch my heart. To me, the JUMP event is an opportunity to thank Americans. Please watch “Long-Lasting Friendship between U.S. Military Personnel and Japan.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?
