Each year JASWDC holds a Japan-US Military Program (JUMP) panel discussion at the National War College, inviting experts on the US-Japan relationship to share their views on a diverse range of topics and issues.
Now in our 5th year, the JUMP event stands in contrast to many of the Society’s Signature events and language & cultural programming. Through this event, we have the opportunity to interact with an audience separate to our regular membership – one comprised primarily of National War College students and Military affiliated individuals. As interest and attendance continues to grow, this event is something that we look forward to with growing anticipation each year.
