James Zumwalt is a retired Marine infantry officer who served in the Vietnam war, the 1989 intervention into Panama and Desert Storm.  He currently heads a security consulting firm named after his father—Admiral Zumwalt & Consultants, Inc.

An internationally acclaimed best-selling author, he writes extensively on foreign policy and defense issues, having written hundreds of articles for various newspapers, magazines and professional journals, including:

  • USA Today
  • The Washington Post
  • The New York Times
  • The Washington Times
  • The LA Times
  • The Chicago Tribune
  • The San Diego Union
  • Parade magazine
  • & others

His articles have covered issues of major importance, oftentimes providing readers with unique perspectives that have never appeared elsewhere.  This has resulted, on several occasions, in his work being cited by members of Congress and entered into the US Congressional Record.

His thoughtful perspectives earned him an invitation to join the prestigious Committee on the Present Danger (CPD), of which the honorary co-chairmen are Senator Joe Lieberman, Senator Jon Kyl, former Secretary of State George P. Schultz and former CIA Director R. James Woolsey. The CPD is a non-partisan organization with one goal—to stiffen American resolve to confront the challenge presented by terrorism & the ideologies that drive it.
