James Feldkamp

Special Agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) at Norfolk, Virginia
Embarking on a multifaceted career, Commander James Feldkamp, USN (Retired), has made significant contributions to the military, federal law enforcement, politics, and academia. He first gained prominence as a Counter-Measures Officer and Navigator aboard the U.S. Navy's EA-6B, a specialized carrier-based electronic warfare aircraft. During 1991's Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, he was deployed on the USS Midway to fly critical missions. Upon moving to the Naval Reserves, he took up a new role as an FBI Special Agent stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. There, he played an instrumental role in forming the Joint Counter Terrorism Task Force and additionally undertook aerial surveillance tasks, being one of a select group of pilots tasked with tracking suspects from the air. Shifting his focus to politics in 2004, he campaigned as the Republican nominee for Oregon's 4th Congressional District, a feat he repeated in the 2006 electoral cycle. In 2007, he was called back into active reserve duty, where he was central to developing the precursor to the National Maritime Intelligence-Integration Office (NMIO). In this capacity, he facilitated the exchange of non-classified information to improve maritime security on a global scale. In the academic realm, he is currently a Subject Matter Expert at Georgetown University, concentrating on a course that explores "Terrorism and Unconventional Threats." Previously, he enriched the curriculum at George Mason and George Washington Universities as an adjunct professor, teaching studies in domestic and international terrorism. Feldkamp's scholarly work also includes authoring and editing an academic textbook on the "Theory and Politics of Terrorism."
