I served 26 years in the Navy on submarines; one of them was the USS John C. Calhoun SSBN 630.

In the Feb. 13 Post and Courier was an article that Yale University is mulling changing the name of a small college named after Calhoun.

It seems that there is a movement to do away with any thing named after Calhoun and that there is shame in any institution named for him.

Does this mean that all of us who served with great honor on the USS Calhoun should now be ashamed to wear items with her name on them or that her 26-year career defending this country should be hidden away? I think not.
