 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Chris was assigned to an East Coast-based SEAL team; died Aug. 6 2011 in Wardak province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when the CH-47 Chinook helicopter in which he was riding was shot down. SO1 (SEAL) Christopher G. Campbell was one of thirty service members who died in a CH-47 Chinook helicopter crash in Wardak province, Afghanistan, on Aug. 6, 2011.

Campbell’s work frequently sent him on missions out of the country, and his family asked few questions when he showed up with a full beard or arrived for a visit that could only last three hours. In an email to his daughter Samantha sent days before the crash, he wrote that he was looking forward to coming home in November and celebrating her 15th birthday in January.

Campbell enlisted in November 1996, according to the Navy. He graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL in Coronado, Calif., in February 1998.

Campbell served with a West Coast-based SEAL team until May 2004, when he reported to the Naval Special Warfare Advanced Training Detachment at Key West, Fla. He joined the East Coast-based SEAL team in February 2006.
