Connecting those who have served in Japan.

The Japan U.S. Military Program (JUMP) connects past and present service members, families, and government civilians who have served in Japan.

Through social networks and events, JUMP builds relationships and provides opportunities for service members to engage with each other. JUMP provides a powerful foundation for sustaining the solid alliance and relationship that exists between the U.S. and Japan.

JUMP is a collaborative effort between Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, the Embassy of Japan in the United States, and the National Association of Japan-America Societies. The program was launched in April 2015.
