“It is my great honor and privilege to endorse Master Chief Petty Officer (Retired) Tony Gonzales for election to the United States House of Representatives in Texas’ 23rd Congressional District.

As a retired Army Officer of over 32 years who started my career as an enlisted man, a Disabled Veteran, a retired Department of the Army Civilian and a Veteran Service Officer, I know that Tony is grounded in spiritual, American and family values. Tony’s personal story is truly inspiring, coming from humble beginnings, enlisting in the Navy and rising through the ranks to become one of “the top two enlisted grades. Tony is a model of service and patriotism.

After retiring, Tony returned here to his home in the 23rd District, to continue his service by founding the Tony Gonzales Foundation to empower impoverished citizens of the greater San Antonio area and help reunite and strengthen families.

Tony has continued to demonstrate his concern for those who donned our Nations uniform, has been thoughtful in learning about the needs of Service men and women, will work tirelessly to take care of the Veterans and their families who have born the burden of war, and keep us safe and secure. I am confident Tony will represent our needs and the Defense of this Nation impeccably.”
— James H. Doty Jr Brigadier General, US Army Retired
