Throughout his entire career, Addison Washington has demonstrated a profound commitment to service. Whether serving as a Signal Support Systems Specialist in the military or fulfilling the role of a Technical Subject Matter Expert at COLSA, his dedication to service has been a consistent thread in his professional journey. While his initial entry into COLSA was driven by his extensive expertise in tactical ground and air communication, it was the company’s shared passion for philanthropy and their unwavering support for the defense industry that ultimately anchored him within their ranks.
