Committee members, John (JJ) Mackin, Dick Cooper and John O’Donnell visited Cogitic Corporation in Colorado Springs. There they met with company owners, brothers Jared and Jonathan Veteto to discuss partnership and sponsorship for USS Colorado. The company is a small business specializing in precision manufacturing for a variety of clients. They manufacture a number of Subsafe/Level 1 and Nuclear parts for submarines including Virginia Class. Some of the parts the Committee saw were specialized ball valves, shaft seals and Virginia Class Hatch Locking Rings. The owners were very enthusiastic about supporting the USS Colorado project and we look forward to working with them in the future. The pictures show Virginia Class Hatch Locking Rings in production.
