Intelligence officer?

Possibly as a footnote to other activities, Wikipedia notes that "His father, President gave him a commission as a major in the United States Army, and had him transferred and posted to Fort Richardson, Alaska, where he worked as an intelligence officer and helped establish a territorial militia of Eskimos and Aleuts."
