After Snake defeated Liquid, Campbell was exonerated from charges, as blame was laid on Houseman instead. After the events of Shadow Moses Incident, Campbell continued with his retirement. He later revealed to Meryl that he is really her father. However, this Colonel was later revealed to be an artificial construct created by the Patriots and generated by GW, the supercomputer of Arsenal Gear.
Sometime after the Big Shell Incident, Raiden and Campbell actually physically met, with Campbell taking on a sort of "commanding officer" role in Raiden's life.
Campbell and Rosemary devised a plan to protect Raiden and Rose's son. They broke all ties to Raiden, who had disappeared into the Alaskan wilderness, and pretended to marry. Campbell played out his new life to the fullest, not even being able to tell his own daughter Meryl the truth. Not content with the UN and other governments simply ignoring Liquid's attempt to plunge the world into total war, in effect aiding the economy of the 21st Century, Campbell took the matter into his own hands and hired Snake to perform an assassination.
Upon reaching the Middle East, Snake met up with Meryl, Campbell's daughter, who revealed to Snake that Campbell had remarried to Rosemary and she was no longer speaking with "that womanizing piece of shit".

Campbell remarked how beautiful Meryl looked, making both her and Mei Ling, Meryl's bridesmaid, break down in tears. She involved herself in more unorthodox soldiering ways, and longed for the secret field of an espionage agent.
She loved the idea of working in secret and independent situations, relying on her own intelligience and decision-making skills.
Exploring her tastes some, she entered a relatively new program in the Army which consisted of a heavy regiment of Virtual Reality training. Meryl was very adept at these courses and loved the thrill she got from the VR simulators. After getting the hang of the simulations, Meryl continued to strive for mastery, completing any and all simulations brought before her. Feeling like a soldier, Meryl felt she had completed a special part of her life, but one devoid of actual combat.
Deciding to try for actual combat, she talked to her superiors, who, after noting her overall excellent performance in training and the newly instated VR training, referred her to a combat school where she took formal lessons from a guide.Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots - Part 14: "Young" Snake?
Learning along with other students her age and older, Meryl learned the important psychology of warfare. The course taught her many things about enemy behavior and expected reactions in environments that called for life or death decisions.
Meryl had the psychology down, and knew she could handle a real situation; she had been ready for it all her life.
Using old contacts from her uncle Roy Campbell, she was referred to and scouted out by the legendary secret unit Fox-Hound. Liking what they saw as a possible recruit with a promising future, Meryl was given a position in the ranks of Fox-Hound; one of the first females to do so. She immediately began receiving minor genetic engineering for her first assignment and was billed as being a specialist in hand-weapons and electrical circuitry. This would make her a more efficient killer and less likely to suffer from paranoia or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder by blocking feelings of guilt for what she would do on the battlefield.
Jaded into the soldier mindset, she was given her first assignment and transferred to a secretive base on Shadow Moses Island as a new Fox-Hound operative. Her future as a combat agent would never be the same.
Profile of Meryl Silverburgh
On the same day she was transferred to Shadow Moses Island, a terrorist insurrection shattered her military ideals and Meryl was caught in the midst of the uprising. Meryl, refusing to go along with the terrorists, and being as green as she was, was captured easily by rogue members of Fox-Hound and imprisoned on the base. A final radio transmission from her indicated that her natural Alaskan surroundings were beginning to have an effect on her values and view of life.
