Dcn. Tony Carmona FICF
Tony Carmona is a Knights of Columbus bilingual Field Agent with the Schachle Agency, serving brother
Knights and their families in Tennessee and Kentucky. He speaks fluent Spanish. He has been a member
of the Knights of Columbus for over three decades and became a Field Agent for the Order in 2018.
When asked why he became a Field Agent, Tony said, “As a Field Agent, I get to put my faith into action
by serving members and their families.”
Originally from Bronx, New York, he and his family reside in Clarksville, Tennessee. He earned a
bachelor’s degree in Public Management and a Minor in Psychology from Austin Peay State University.
Tony was also an ordained Deacon in the Diocese of Owensboro, Kentucky on September 11, 2021.
Before becoming a Field Agent, he served in the U.S. Army for 23 years. After retiring from the Army in
2010, he worked as a Logistical Analyst and Technical Trainer at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, as a Veterans
Service Representative and Legal Administrative Representative for the Department of Veterans Affairs
Nashville, Tennessee, and a Contract Specialist for the Army Corps of Engineers also in Nashville.
He has been married for over 32 years. He and his wife Ana have three daughters and four grandchildren.
Tony and Ana are parishioners at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Guthrie, Kentucky, where Tony
serves as a Deacon.
Tony has served as a Council Member and Deputy Grand Knight of the Four Chaplains Council 10652,
Joint Base Lewis McChord, Charter Member of Fr. Emil Kapaun Council 12965, Oak Grove, Kentucky,
past member of Father John A. Nolan Council 03537, Clarksville, Tennessee, and Charter Grand Knight
of Fr. Francis L. Sampson Council 15914, Ft. Campbell, Kentucky where he is currently a member.
When asked what he hopes to achieve for his members, he said, “As a U.S. Army Veteran of 23 years, I
learned how to be an effective leader. I believe the best way to establish credibility with any member and
their families is to share my faith and have clear communication and good listening skills. As an agent, I
strive to be like our founder, Father McGivney, who had an attractive, good-humored, and warm
personality, described as “almost childlike.” Father McGivney was amiable and unassuming yet zealous
in his love for souls and the Lord. Father McGivney spent his short life serving others in imitation of
Christ, and that is the best example of how I can serve members and their families.”
Tony has extensive knowledge of the products the Knights of Columbus offers to members and their
families and stands ready to help them achieve their financial goals.
