Connecting those who have served in Japan.

NHK features JUMP in report from Marine Corps Base Quantico

 

The U.S.-Japan military alliance and efforts to bring together those who have served in Japan were highlighted Saturday on NHK news after new crews attended an event hosted by the Defense Attaché office of the Embassy of Japan in the United States in collaboration with JUMP.

The reunion event at Marine Corps Base Quantico brought together more than 200 active and retired service members and their families who have served in Japan. The event included a reception, remarks from the host and distinguished guests, a briefing on JUMP, a toast, a performance of traditional Okinawan Eisaa dance, and comments from Marines reflecting on their memories in Japan.

“We continue to thank our friendship and close ties with the United States Marine Corps — Ooh-Rah!” said RADM Yuki Sekiguchi, Defense Attaché with the Embassy of Japan who spoke at the event.

The NHK broadcast also includes remarks from LtGen Robert S. Walsh, Commanding General, Marine Corps Combat Development Command, and Deputy Commandant, Combat Development and Integration, who spoke at the event.

“The relationship between the two countries, I think, are central to addressing the regional and global challenges that we’ve got now and into the future,” he said in the broadcast.
