Humvee Manufacturer, AM General, Names New Legal Head

When Daniel Dell'Orto graduated from Notre Dame on an ROTC scholarship with an aerospace engineering degree, he wanted to fly helicopters. Unfortunately he failed the Army colorblindness test. So instead he took advantage of a new, post-Vietnam Army program, where the military sent him to law school.

"I noticed many years ago," says Dell'Orto, who is a retired Army colonel, "that legal matters were cropping up as a significant part of a commander's role in leading, managing and supervising, even at my low level at the time."
