    Three members of the new USS Colorado Submarine Association recently traveled to Groton to meet with the crew of USS Colorado with the purpose of defining how the new Association could best support the boat for the long term. Association President, Don Price and members JJ Mackin and Rick Riessen spent two days meeting with various members of the Command, including the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer and Chief of the Boat. They met also with the officers of the Family Readiness Group accompanied by the CO’s wife, Aimee Koepp and XO’s wife, Tiffany Wolff.

    It was a great visit! The hospitality of the crew was amazing especially considering their busy in port period. This visit helped strengthen the bonds between the state and the crew and demonstrate our commitment to support them throughout the life of the boat.
