Dr. Gonzalez advanced further and completed a two-year fellowship that included Basic Science Research and Sports Medicine Surgery at the distinguished United States Military Academy at West Point. His first assignment was as a flight surgeon in Korea. Here he flew helicopters as a Captain and was chosen to serve as the officer in charge of the U.S. Army's largest health clinic in that country.
