Shipmates, for those of you who are active with our USS John C. Calhoun Veterans Association (JCCVA) and/or United States Submarine Veterans Incorporated (USSVI), this coming August 14-20 in Austin, TX, many of us Calhoun veterans will be attending the USSVI 2019 Convention as part of a Mini-Reunion and Plaque Dedication Ceremony for the John. C. Calhoun at the Museum of the Pacific War in nearby Fredericksburg, TX. Our Mini-Reunion Committee, chaired by former Gold Crew 66-70 ET and currently JCCVA Chairman of the Board, George Wright, is looking for volunteers to assist with this event, as well as Shipmates who are willing to donate to help cover the $2,500.00 cost of the Plaque and its dedication ceremony. These donations may be sent to our Treasurer at: Plaque Account, c/o Dean Hunt, 105 Eva Drive, Ladson, SC 29456. George believes strongly in this project and has started the donations off with his generous check for $1,000.00. Or you can make donations via PayPal using the donate button below.
USSVI has group rates set up with the hotel and details can be found at the USSVI Convention page: http://ussviconvention.org/2019/
Below is what the plaque will look like.
Note: The attached photo is of the SSBN635 (Sam Rayburn) plaque, which association member Joe Shook was honored to help dedicate several years ago.
