Politician, Businessman. Native to Breathitt County, Kentucky Calhoun enlisted in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division during World War II. On June 6, 1944, he led a platoon ashore at Utah Beach as part of the Normandy Invasion by Allied forces under General Dwight D. Eisenhower. After 51 days of combat, Calhoun was wounded on July 26, 1944 during the battle of Saint-Lo, France and spent the remainder of the war in an Allied hospital in Cardiff, England. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal, the Purple Heart Medal, the Combat Infantry Badge, the American Defense Service Ribbon, and the European-African-Middle Eastern Ribbon with two Bronze Stars. He later received a medal from the French government commemorating the 50th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion and the liberation of France. After the war, he moved to Arkansas where he ran several businesses over the years. In the 1960's, he became chairman of the Republican Party in Conway County, Arkansas and was a political reformer during the two terms of Governor Winthrop Rockefeller's tenure. He was an avid supporter of veterans and their rights and was commander for several years of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter in Morrilton, Arkansas. After his retirement, in his later years he volunteered his time as serving as a superintendant of Sunday Schools and other duties with his local church. After a long illness, he passed away at age 88.
