JASH Weekly Update: Save the Date for JUMP and Golf
Dear Members and Friends of JASH, We hope you all had a wonderful Lunar New Year! Roaring in with the Year of the Tiger, we are excited to announce the dates for two of our major annual events: our Japan U.S. Military Program and our 32nd Annual JASH Friendship Golf Classic. First, happening later this month, we are proud to announce the date for our annual Japan U.S. Military Program (JUMP).
Please join us Tuesday, February 22, 2022 for an interactive Zoom program featuring our esteemed panelists. More details about the program, special guest speakers, and registration are coming soon. Thanks to the generous support of Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA and National Association of Japan-America Societies, there is no cost to attend. 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 grassroots events. JUMP is the only national program to do so, providing a powerful foundation for sustaining the alliance between the U.S. and Japan. To learn more about JUMP, visit https://www.jumprogram.org/.
