Washington, D.C. – FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III, recently announced the appointment of Frederick T.

After a subsequent three-year assignment as a military instructor at the USNA, Mr. Brink resigned from active military duty in 1985 upon receiving his special agent appointment to the FBI.

During his FBI career, Mr. Brink's field assignments have included Tampa, Florida (the Orlando Resident Agency); Honolulu, Hawaii (as supervisory special agent); and New York, New York (as a special agent, Assistant Special Agent in Charge, and currently as Special Agent in Charge).
