    The USS Colorado Submarine Association has recently been formed to support the crew of Colorado’s namesake submarine throughout its lifetime. Their main purposes are to 

    • Support the morale, well-being and recreation of the crew and their families.
    • Encourage, advocate, and generate statewide support for the crew and to educate the citizens of Colorado about their namesake submarine.
    • Educate the crew about the beauty of Colorado and the heritage of previous USS Colorado’s.
    • Raise funds to support these objectives.

    Some of the projects they have recently conducted:

    • Hosted visit to Colorado by four crew members in May.
    • Funded pizza and bowling party for sailors’ families while the boat was deployed.
    • Bought gifts for the crew to help them celebrate half-way night on their deployments.
    • Donate dolphin pins to newly qualified sailors.
    • Visited Groton to meet with the crew and attended a ship’s picnic.
    • Help put on dinners and parties for the crew and families when we visit the boat.

    They are looking for members to help join in this effort to show Colorado’s support. Membership dues in the association are $100 per year for an individual and $150 per year with a family member. Members will be able to participate in future crew related events.

    For more information and to enroll as a member please visit them at usscoloradosubassoc.org. Feel free to contact them at usscoloradosubassoc@gmail.com.

    All Hands,

    Sports Illustrated just published their list of the ten greatest rivalries in college football.  Army - Navy is #4 with the following observation:

    "If you need an explanation as to why this makes the list, then you've never been—and you should go."

    You can read the very short article here.

    Beat Army,

    All Hands,

    About three quarters of the Class of '19 joined the AMP.  This is a program created to connect alums who have knowledge and/ore experience with those seeking it.  It's not about greyheads pronouncing sage advice to rapt newbies, but rather about men and women with experience providing insight as a resource.  It's also about younger alums with current, real world knowledge providing insight to what's happenin' now in the Fleet and the Corps. 

    You can find out about AMP here.

    Today, June 26th, is I-Day for the Class of '23.  About 1100 young men and women will raise their right hands today and start their journey toward joining the Fleet and the greatest group of alums in the world.
