Jim Hunt grew up in a small town near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. He was always tall for his age. He played basketball and baseball in high school, and was a good student. He entered the University of Delaware and studied Chemical Engineering. During his junior year in college, the CIA recruited him to monitor the radical groups on campus that were a growing concern in the U.S. government during the 1960s.
After graduation from college, Jim entered the U.S. Army as a 2nd Lieutenant and attended officer's training in the Chemical Corps. He was assigned to Ft. Lewis, Washington and was immediately transferred to the Corps of Engineers, which was staffing several units for deployment to Vietnam. While at Ft. Lewis, Jim was recruited by a Chinese intelligence agency, with the full knowledge and support of the CIA. Thus began his life as a double agent. Jim Hunt had to use all his skill and resources to gain the freedom of his fellow employees. His final operation before retiring was to recruit a senior official of China's MSS to work for the CIA. After retirement from the CIA, the Chinese MSS, and Renewable Power Company, Jim Hunt and his wife moved to Hilton Head Island, SC for a restful retirement. Jim missed the action and decided to join the Peace Corps.
