Also known as Richard Holm or Richard L. Holm, Dick Holm is a famed American CIA Operations Officer who served under 13 CIA directors and was winner of the Distinguished Intelligence Medal, the CIA’s highest award.
Holm joined the CIA in the 1960s, and in his first assignment served in the CIA's secret war in Laos against the communists in the lead-up to the Vietnam War. Holm was then posted to the Congo and suffered near-fatal burns over 35% of his body from a plane crash. His horrific burns were treated by local tribesmen with a black paste made of snake oil and tree bark. He remained in their care for 10 days until he was finally rescued and quickly sent back to America for medical care.
His body permanently scarred, Holm returned to service after two years of extensive and expensive medical care in the United States, serving for several more decades in the CIA and achieving legendary status within the Agency. Holm worked in Hong Kong and Paris and was instrumental in anti–terrorism operations during Carlos the Jackal’s international terror campaign.
Holm's final assignment was Chief of the CIA Station in Paris, where he was held responsible when French authorities uncovered a CIA operation involving economic espionage. In the operation, a female American CIA undercover operative, posing as the representative of a US non-profit, enjoyed clandestine meetings with a French official to obtain secret trade information. The American operative fell in love with the French official and allegedly behaved irresponsibly, her lack of discretion leading to the discovery of the operation. Holm was publicly expelled by the French Government along with several other CIA agents posing as diplomats; Holm denied responsibility by claiming the American operative hid her romantic relationship with the French official from the CIA.
In 2004, Holm published his memoirs, The American Agent (ISBN 1-903608-14-7).
