Connecting those who have served in Japan.

Pensacola event to celebrate U.S., Japan military alliance


Pensacola is gearing up for this weekend’s Japan-US Military Program (JUMP) event, as previewed in the October 19 edition of the Pensacola News Journal.

“The relationship between the U.S. and Japan has evolved and gotten stronger over time,” said JUMP Program Director James Kendall in the article. “Now we are closer to Japan than ever, in part because it has become a lot less of an alien place for Americans. There are many Americans who have visited Japan and come away with a very positive impression.”

“Kendall encouraged local military members who have served in Japan to attend Saturday’s event and share their experiences. He said it is important to reinforce the friendship between the two countries,” the article reads.

“We feel it is never good to take anything for granted. Something may seem very stable, but it doesn’t stay that way through happenstance,” he said.
