USAF Major (Ret.) Anthony Borja

Guam Congressman Michael San Nicolas has recommended USAF Major (Ret.) Anthony Borja to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Palau

In further exercise of his duties as the senior elected federal official for Guam, Congressman San Nicolas continues to make formal recommendations to the Biden-Harris transition team for presidentially appointed positions.

“We are proud to recommend for nomination USAF Major (Ret.) Anthony Borja for consideration to serve as United States Ambassador to the Republic of Palau,” San Nicolas said in a news release. “Major Borja’s historical family ties to Palau and his success in navigating Palau political and judicial systems, in context with his service to our country in Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Bosnia, affords the United States with an opportunity to have a regionally astute battle-tested diplomat in service of our country. It is an honor to recommend this veteran son of Micronesia to serve our people and country, and further strengthen the historic CHamoru-Palauan ties that unite our past and our future with America,” Congressman San Nicolas added.

Retired Airforce Major Anthony Borja defended our country as a Sailor in Vietnam, and Airman in Desert Storm and Bosnia. As a descendent of the late Mariano Borja, Major Borja’s parents and family were WWII survivors having narrowly escaped imperial Japan atrocities in Palau with the help of many of the Palauan people.

Reared on Guam, Major Borja is currently married to the lovely Clare Crisostomo James-Borja, loves his three children Jeni Isa, Tasi Lynn, and Napu Anthony, and currently resides in Las Vegas, NV where he actively volunteers in service of our nation’s veterans in the National Organization of Chamorro Veterans (NOCVA).

“More appointment opportunities and candidate viability options continue to be considered as we seek to put meaningful and relevant options forward for the Biden-Harris administration to consider,” San Nicolas said.
