The boy Joe had been orphaned with years before was gone--the young man who had followed him into the Navy, whose snapshot he has kept ever since. Exactly where or how he died, Joe never learned. Long after Campbell learned his brother was killed on the Arizona, salvage crews lifting the ship's No.

When Joe Campbell attended New Mexico State, he did a lot of studying. College students majoring in psychology have to do that. College linebackers learning to rush the quarterback don't have to study quite as much. "When I was in college, I would just wait for them to snap the ball, and then I would take off," Campbell said. "I'd try and beat the blocker around the corner and see if I could get there. A lot of times, I really wouldn't know what I was doing." Still, Campbell did pretty well.
