Welcome to USS Colorado (SSN-788) Commissioning Committee web site. USS Colorado (SSN-788) is the 15th Virginia Class submarine. It was delivered to the Navy on September 21, 2017 and is currently conducting shakedown operations. After shakedown is complete, it will be commissioned on March 17, 2018 at Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, CT. The Committee's purposes are to promote awareness within the state, provide support for the crew, and to help organize and raise money for the events surrounding commissioning.

In a meeting Friday, April 1 (no fooling!) nationally-acclaimed Colorado nature photographer John Fielder met with USS Colorado SSN 788 Commissioning Chairman John “J.J.” Mackin, and Vice Chair, Dick Cooper, in his Denver gallery to discuss his support to improve the living environment for the crew on USS Colorado, which is due to be commissioned in Groton, CT in 2017.

John is supplying the scenic photography to grace locker fronts in the crew’s mess; a major improvement over the wood-grain plastic laminate normally supplied in construction.  In addition, Mr. Fielder donated a signed copy of Colorado 1870-2000, to be auctioned at the April 8 event at Balistreri Vineyards. He will discuss the project at this event. If you would like to attend this event and hear about the project and have a chance to bid on his fabulous book visit the event page.
