Sailors clear snow and ice from the forecastle of the USS McCampbell (DDG-85) in the Sea of Japan, on February 3, 2017. The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer is patrolling in the 7th Fleet area of operations to support security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
The McCampbell is named in honor of Naval Aviator Captain David S. McCampbell, a Medal of Honor and Navy Cross recipient who was the Navy’s leading ace in World War II.
