USCG Cutter Campbell (WMEC 909)

USCGC CAMPBELL (WMEC-909) is the sixth cutter to bear the name CAMPBELL. Four were named for George Washington Campbell, Secretary of the Treasury in 1814. One was named for James Campbell, Postmaster General in 1863. The newest CAMPBELL, the ninth of the Coast Guard Famous Cutter class, is named to honor the previous CAMPBELLs, especially the USS CAMPBELL CG-32. The first CAMPBELL, a schooner, patrolled the Chesapeake Bay from 1830 to 1834. The second, also a schooner, saw service in the Gulf of Mexico between 1834-1839 and participated in the Seminole Indian War.

The keel for WMEC-909 had been laid at the Derecktor shipyard in Middletown, Rhode Island (Naval Station Newport, RI) on 10 August 1984. She was launched on 29 April 1986 and commissioned into service on 19 August 1988. The USCGC Campbell was the ninth of thirteen Famous-class cutters built by Derecktor to replace World War II and pre–World War II cutters.
