VISAKHAPATNAM, India (NNS) -- Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson visited Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell (DDG 85) during the India's International Fleet Review (IFR) 2016.

While aboard McCampbell, CNO had lunch with junior officers and discussed various topics. Some of the discussions were related to his recently released "A Design for Maintaining Maritime Superiority," a document that addresses how the Navy will adapt to changes in the security environment and continue to fulfill its mission.

CNO had an all-hands call with McCampbell Sailors where he answered several questions before his departure.

McCampbell arrived in India, Feb. 4, to participate in IFR 2016, which is an international military exercise hosted by the Indian Navy to help enhance mutual trust and confidence with navies around the world. Through Feb. 8, more than 50 countries participated in the event.

Since Feb. 4, Sailors assigned to the McCampbell and Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54) participated in various events of the IFR 2016 such as the opening ceremony, fleet review, and fly-by.

Antietam and McCampbell are forward deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, and are currently on patrol in the 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
