About Tony Peluso

Born in Pennsylvania, Tony grew up in Phoenix, Ariz., where he graduated from a Jesuit prep school. Dropping out of Arizona State University after his second year, Tony volunteered for the Airborne and served in Vietnam from 1968-1969 as an enlisted paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Separate). Intensely motivated by his war time experiences, Tony returned to college, graduated with distinction with a degree in history, graduated from law school, passed the Texas bar exam, and obtained a commission as a Captain in the United States Army, Judge Advocate General’s Corps in 1975. He holds JD and LLM degrees.

Tony served 17 more years on active duty as a JAGC officer in different assignments, including tours with the 82nd Airborne and later another with 18th Airborne Corps. In 1992, Tony retired as a Lieutenant Colonel to accept an appointment as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Tampa Division of the Middle District of Florida. Tony served more than 14 years as a Federal Prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office until 2006, when he retired from the Department of Justice to assume his current responsibilities.
