« Breaking News: Judge Alito Is the SCOTUS Nominee!!! | Main | The Alito Nomination: A Few Quick Reactions »

October 31, 2005


Nel J. Lehto

EDUCATION: AB, Princeton, 1972; JD, Yale, 1975

Served in the Army Reserves from 1972 until 1980 when he was discharged as a captain. (The typical committment was six years. Did he re-enlist?)

Alito clerked for Judge Leonard Garth of the Third Circuit, who is now his colleague on that court, from 1976 to 1977.

From 1977-1980, Alito served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the appellate division, where he argued cases before the circuit court to which he was later appointed.

So, what did he do in the U.S. Army Reserve? Why did he join after graduating from Princeton? Was he ROTC? The Vietnam draft was ending in June 1972, if I recall correctly.
