Former CIA Operative and Author Visits Patriots Colony At Williamsburg

October 25, 2016

Williamsburg, VA –Marti Peterson, a former operations officer with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), visited Patriots Colony At Williamsburg earlier this month as a keynote presenter in the community's regular speakers series.

Peterson, who served in the CIA for more than three decades, outlined her career and highlighted the time she spent in Moscow. Part of her role then was contacting an official in the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs, code named TRIGON, who was passing Soviet Union secrets to her.

Eventually discovered, she returned to the U.S. where she continued her CIA career. Following retirement in 2003, she published a book about some of her experiences, titled The Widow Spy.

Patriots Colony, a Riverside Health System continuing care retirement community, caters its independent living residences to retired and former military officers, retired federal civil employees and their spouses. The gated community also offers nursing level and assisted living care to the entire community on its 90 acre campus near historic Williamsburg.

A speaker series is held regularly in the community.
