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.
