JUMP connects past and present service members, families and government civilians who have served in Japan, providing a powerful foundation for sustaining the solid alliance and relationship that exists between the U.S. and Japan. A collaborative effort between Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, the Embassy of Japan in the United States and the National Association of Japan-America Societies, JUMP was launched in April 2015.
