James Feldkamp is a man of many talents. He has been affiliated with the U.S. Naval Reserves, working as a Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and founding member of the Joint Counter Terrorism Task Force. As a collateral duty, he was one of three pilots in the Norfolk office that conducted physical aerial surveillance of suspects in criminal and terrorist cases. In 2004 he resigned from the FBI to become the Republican nominee for Oregon’s District 4 Congressional seat during the 2004 and 2006 election cycles. In 2007 he was recalled to active Navy reserve duty to help establish the precursor office of NMIO and was responsible for coordinating all domestic and international information-sharing among U.S. federal government agencies. This effort earned him a Presidential commendation letter from George Bush Jr.
