 Shipmates;
 Due to the severe flooding in the entire state, and the previous homeport  of our beloved USS John C. Calhoun, SSBN 630, Charleston, SC, I am asking you all to extend your compassion, concerns, and prayers to all of our fellow shipmates who live in the affected areas.
If you hear of any of our folks who are in trouble, please let us know here at the 1MC page or my e-mail address below.
These are our Calhoun family and we are dedicated to supporting them in any way we can.
Hope all concerned are well.
Thanks, mates!
Green Board here.

Welcome aboard the USS John C. Calhoun Veterans Association's (JCCVA) homeport on the web.  The ship, USS John C. Calhoun (SSBN 630), was a Fleet Ballistic Missile nuclear submarine; whose sole purpose was to be part of this nations "triad" of nuclear deterrence.  The "triad" consisted of the long range, strategic bombers, the inground missile silos, and the FBM submarines.  This "triad" of deterrence, whose destructive potential was immense, was the force that literally brought the Cold War to an end and was a major factor in the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union.  We, the members of the JCCVA have united with our shipmates to keep the memory of this fine ship alive and to rekindle the friendships we share, and still cherish. We hope you enjoy our site and leave us feeling as if we have done a good job honoring this fine submarine and her service of over 30 years to our nation.  Some of our pages have sound so you may want to turn up your speakers.  Please look around, sign our Decklog (guestbook), and enjoy your time aboard!  We're glad your'e here!.
