Here's where we'll list announcements, items of interest,
and news about shipmates. If you'd like to post information here, please click the link and let us know. Also,
if you know the whereabouts or how to contact other JCC shipmates who aren't JCCVA members or registered on our sailing list,
please submit that information as well so we may contact them.
Many of you may, or may not,
know anything about this!
we are trying to recompile these records for us all, since
destroyed those the Navy had stored in New Orleans!
If you can recall when you commenced and ended any of
the refits and patrols you may have participated in, please
forward these dates to either our Historian, Pete Swiderski,
or the email of this website - firstname.lastname@example.org.
(This information is no longer Classified!)
you in advance!
the years, when one of you accepts his orders for
Eternal Patrol, that information, along with your obituary,
sometimes doesn't reach us, or your Shipmates, in a very
timely fashion, if at all! We would like to improve on our
Chaplain's and other's ability to receive that info promptly,
and to act appropriately on it!
We recognize and definitely respect the fact this is not
the best time for a beloved family member to be
an email or calling one of your former Shipmates,
but, if you
would kindly inform them now of how to do
time does come, we would really
appreciate it. Many of us may
not send donations to
your favorite charity, or flowers to
your family, but
our diligent Chaplain will send a card and
plus there are some of us who will observe a short
moment of Silence in you and your family's regard!
Thanks, and God Bless you all!
A humble request from Joe
Shook, MT1(SS), Gold Plankowner and Temporary Webmaster
Shipmates, Widows and Calhoun supporters. We are seeking photos of those
former crew members who are now on Eternal Patrol. Please contact Glenn Gerbrand by email (email@example.com), if you have any pictures you care to share. Thank you.

ATTENTION Shipmates! Did you know that our ship's sponsor,
Rosalie Calhoun, attends all of our reunions? Rosalie is the great - great grandaughter of John C. Calhoun and she christened the
boat when she was 14 years old! We're thankful for Rosalie's support and she brings a lot of life to our Association
