JUMP, in cooperation with the Japan-America Society of Hawaii, hosted the third annual JUMP in Hawaii reception at the Official Residence of the Consul General of Japan in Honolulu on Tuesday, June 4, 2019.
JUMP brought together the local community of Americans who have served in Japan, and we were fortunate to have join us 100 newly commissioned officers of the Japan Training Squadron, who sailed into Honolulu on the JS Kashima and JS Inazuma. Opening remarks were made by Ms. Yuri Higashi, Consul for Defense Affairs, and Ms. Reyna Kaneko, President of the Japan-America Society of Hawaii.
The Japan Training Squadron Band and the Pacific Fleet Band joined together to entertain the crowd with a mix of Japanese and American songs. A truly great example of the collaborative spirit and friendship between our nations.
