USS McCampbell Strengthens Partnership 
PACIFIC OCEAN - Guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell (DDG 85) completed a maneuvers and communication exercise with Republic of Korea Ulsan-class frigate ROKS Seoul (FF 952) April 18.

During the exercise, the two ships completed shipboard maneuvering drills and practiced transmitting and receiving flashing light and flag hoist messages.

The exercise was a learning experience and training opportunity for both crews. It also helped to reaffirm the important relationship between the U.S. and Republic of Korea navies. Opportunities such as this help build upon the alliance that exists between the two navies.

This was the first time McCampbell operated with the Republic of Korea Navy since participating in the Invincible Spirit exercise in July 2010.

USS McCampbell is one of seven Arleigh Burke-class destroyers assigned to Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 15 and is forward-deployed to Commander Fleet Activities Yokosuka in Japan.
