From your Chaplain (who is recovering from a broken leg):

Let’s altogether pray for those in the sights of Hurricane

Michael which prepares to bear down on the Florida panhandle

and surrounding regions. High winds, storm surge, excessive

rain and flooding all threaten the residents in its path. Lift a

special prayer for our shipmates and their families in

those affected areas.

 

Lord God, we come before you to praise you

for your love, grace, and mercy, and to pray

for those in the path of this hurricane. Grant

wisdom, strength, and courage to all first

responders, protect the residents, and provide

for the victims in accordance with your great

mercy.

 

Amen!

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 you're here!.
