Welcome to USS Colorado (SSN-788) Commissioning Committee web site. USS Colorado (SSN-788) is the 15th Virginia Class submarine and is currently under construction at Electric Boat shipyard in Groton, Ct. It is expected to be commissioned in October or November 2017. 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.
On January 29th Military Appreciation Day was celebrated at the State Capitol. USS Colorado was honored in Joint Resolution 1005 sponsored by Representatives Humphrey and Williams. Several Committee members came out to support. We thank them and the the legislators for their recognition of USS Colorado!
The latest information we have on the boat’s schedule is that Christening will likely be August or September of this year. Commissioning will occur probably in late April or early May of 2017.
When the dates have been finalized we will have a link on the web site for interested persons to sign up for invitations.
