USS Columbus in Mourning

It is with great sadness that the USS Columbus announces the loss of another crew member, Anna Price, who went on to the Final Frontier on Friday, June 17.  We offer our heartfelt condolences to her husband Doug and her family.


The Out of this World Festival, an annual event hosted by Starbase Columbus was dedicated  posthumously in this year of 2016 to Vice Admiral Steve Harper, former commanding officer of the USS Columbus for his tireless efforts to collect toys each year for the Firefighters 4 Kids Toy Drive.
The festival is a fun, family friendly event that is held each year in May.
