William Thomas

William Thomas is a grassroots engagement director for Concerned Veterans for America in Texas and a veteran of the United States Navy. 

William followed in a family tradition of service – his father served during the Vietnam War and both grandfathers served during World War II, along with many other family members going all the way back to the American Revolution. William felt it was his duty to continue in that line of service, especially after witnessing the September 11 terrorist attacks. 

William joined the Navy in 2004 and served six years on active duty and five years in the reserves. William was a hospital corpsman and served at both 1st Reconnaissance Battalion and 4th Reconnaissance Battalion.  He deployed twice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and again on Operation Shared Accord in South Africa.

Before joining CVA, William spent his career in intelligence and security consulting and contracting along with business development. He graduated cum laude from the University of Saint Thomas with a bachelor’s degree in history, and magna cum laude from Southern Methodist University with a master’s degree in global studies. 

William lives in Dallas with his wife Ashley.
