The Commissioning Committee has been formed to:

  • Raise awareness within the state about construction and commissioning. Create enthusiasm and support.
  • Promote relations between the state and the ship’s crew. Maintain an ongoing connection with the crew throughout the life of the ship.
  • Coordinate activities surrounding the commissioning.
  • Finance appropriate events and activities associated with these objectives. The Navy can only obligate funds for certain activities, such as the formal commissioning ceremony.

We seek to maintain an ongoing connection with the crew throughout the life of the ship as she sails the oceans in defense of our nation.

You can support USS Colorado and her dedicated officers and crew by a contribution that will:

  • Raise funds for traditional Commissioning Week events
  • Provide upgraded shipboard facilities to improve habitability conditions for the crew
  • Help fund visits to Colorado by crew members
  • Funds raised in excess of requirements will be donated to benefit the crew and families and to promote continued relationship with state

USS Colorado (SSN 788) Committee is an authorized 501C3 organization. Contributions are tax deductible to the extend allowed by law.
