The McCampbell's namesake. Captain David S. McCampbell is the Navy’s all-time leading ace with 34 aerial victories during World War II. In October 1944 Captain McCampbell and his wingman attacked a Japanese force of 60 aircraft. During the mission, Captain McCampbell shot down nine enemy planes, setting a single mission aerial combat record. When he landed his Grumman F-6F Hellcat, his six machine guns had two rounds remaining and the plane had only enough fuel to keep it aloft for 10 more minutes. The middle image is Ensign David S. McCampbell taken during his flight training at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, Florida in 1937. The bottom picture is as a Captain and is undated.Daniel H.

ESSM is an international cooperative upgrade of the RIM 7 NATO Sea Sparrow Missile. ESSM provides increased battle space against high-speed, highly maneuverable anti-ship missiles. Loaded in a "quad-pack" canister for the MK-41 vertical launch system (VLS), this tail-controlled missile with Thrust Vector Control, and a quick start guidance section, offers a significant increase in load-out, response time, and fire power. McCampbell is the first ship to deploy with the ESSM. U.S. Navy photo by Lt. j.g. Joel Jackson.Bill Gonyo
