When did you first hear about the town of Phil Campbell, Alabama? While I was in 4th grade (’94-’95), I remember my teacher mentioning that there was a Phil Campbell Convention where a bunch of Phil Campbells had gathered.  I didn’t hear anything more about it then, but it always stuck in my head because it was an odd thing to hear. Later on, in 2008 while I was serving in Korea, we had a slow day at work and we started Googling our names.  I saw the place known as Phil Campbell, AL, read up on it and made the connection.

You are a Phil Campbell. What do you think of that name? I’ve never really given my name any thought.  Makes it a little more interesting now that I know of this town and wonderful group of people that share the same name.  

Tell us a little about yourself, as many words as you would like.  My name is Philip Donald Campbell, and I am originally from a town in Northern Connecticut known as Enfield.  About ten years ago after high school, I decided to enlist in the United States Air Force and I have been serving as an avionics technician ever since.  While serving active duty, I have completed my bachelor degree in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and obtained my Commercial Pilot Certificate as well.  I’m currently stationed at McGuire AFB, New Jersey, and spend a good amount of time flying around and enjoying the sights of New York City and the surrounding areas.  I love the life that the military has provided me, and everything I have been able to experience along with it. Along with serving in Iraq, the military has brought me to many fascinating places around the world, and I am always looking forward to the next adventure.  I was recently accepted into Air Force Officer Training School to become a military pilot, so I will be attending my first part of training near Montgomery, Alabama, and I’m hoping that I can be afforded the time to visit the town of Phil Campbell.
