Connecting those who served in Japan
JUMP Event
in Pensacola, Florida
The Japan-America Society of Northwest Florida organized a JUMP event in Pensacola, Florida on September 4, 2015, which was attended by over 200 people. The event was held at the National Naval Aviation Museum and included a presentation in the Blue Angels atrium, which featured current and former servicemen giving their own perspectives of being stationed in Japan, as well as a group of traditional Japanese dancers. The presentations were followed by a reception on the USS Cabot flight deck.

As part of JUMP's ongoing initiative to reach out to those who have served in Japan, our very own Suzy Wagner sat down with military wife Becky Cederholm to gather her perspectives on her time abroad. Becky reflected on the friendliness of the Japanese people, the importance of engaging with locals off base, and the lasting impression of her time at Air Station Iwakuni.
