Shipmate Macon "Bucky" Clark is organizing a mini-reunion aboard a cruise ship. It's guaranteed to be a great time for everyone. Here are more details from Bucky:
 Ok, folks. I have done a ton of research with a travel planner and here is what I've come up with that I think is the best deal and, hopefully, a trip that all will enjoy. The cruise that appears to suit our needs the most is out of Charleston (where we all like to return when possible.) The dates are November 15 through the 20th, 2017. The cruise is five (5) days with stops in Nassau and Freeport (8 am to 5pm) and time at sea. Cost, at least initially appears to be around $330 per person plus another $180 or so for Port Charges and taxes. Our trip planner informs me that a $50 deposit would need to be paid by January 30, 2017, and then a couple more payments staggered until paid in full. It appears that the more people we have going, the less the cost will be per person, so come on. As the information gets firmed up I will post it here. Now....I NEED EMAIL ADDRESSES FROM ANYONE THAT IS INTERESTED AND I NEED THEM YESTERDAY! Sorry for yelling but, if I don't, people will say they didn't know. Looking forward to hearing from all that want to join us. Please tell all the Shipmates that you are in touch with to either look here or email me at:

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!.
