|The finest of the Forty - One for Freedom!
11/22/2017 - With extreme sadness, let me inform
all you Shipmates and Spouses, that our Chaplin,
Jim Magin, passed away today.
Click here for the Details.
Our thoughts and prayers are with
the Crew of ARA San Juan,
currently missing Argentine submarine,
their families, friends and
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!.
New (10/28/17) Treasurer's report has been posted!
Thank you, Dean!
