JUMP members enjoy social night in Arlington

On March 24, the JUMP team hosted a networking social at Sine' Irish Pub
on Pentagon Row in Arlington, Virginia. It was an informal night of fun networking and socializing with others who have served in Japan. Thank you to all who attended!

The free event was open to all JUMP members. We hope to host another similar event within a few months -----  make sure to pass along sign up information to your friends so they also will be invited!

Looking back on Operation Tomodachi, five years later
JUMP Program Director James Kendall's experience working with Operation Tomodachi was detailed in a March 8 article series in the Sankei Shimbun.
