USS McCampbell (DDG-85) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy, named for Captain David McCampbell (1910–1996), the Navy's leading ace in World War II. She was built at the Bath Iron Works in Maine. She was commissioned 17 August 2002. She arrived at Yokosuka Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan as part of the US Navy's Forward Deployed Naval Forces in July 2007, and is now permanently homeported there. McCampbell maintains on board an active VBSS team to conduct anti piracy, anti-smuggling, and anti-terrorist operations. The ship was an active participant in IMDEX, and the VBSS team was a centerpiece in the multilateral training effort held in conjunction with the exposition. In March 2011, USS McCampbell was the first US Navy vessel on station off northeastern Honshu, Japan to assist with relief efforts after the 2001 Tōhoku earthquake and deliver food, supplies, and other material aid directly to survivors. Later, after the arrival of the carrier Ronald Reagan, the ship continued relief efforts as an element in Carrier Strike Group Seven, using the carrier as a supply distribution hub through early April
