Delighted to read that Margaret Stock has been named a 2013 MacArthur Fellow. I first met Margaret when she was on the law faculty at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. After a decade there, she retired from the Army, withthe rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and took up the practice of law in Alaska. For the last several years she’s been an outspoken advocate for the rights of immigrants in the U.S. military, writing a book on the subject and contributing commentaries to IntLawGrrls blog and other media. Her recognition for this important work, in the form of a $625,000 grant, is well deserved.
