About a week ago, I posted this story about a special Marine who loves chess. Well, many of you helped me locate Cpl. Justin Colon. Thank you everyone for helping me get the message to him.
He got the message and contacted me today. I will see what I can do to help him achieve his chess goal which is to make the All-Marine Chess Team.
In addition, I would love to help the military expand their chess programs. I think chess can help our military men and women develop various special critical skills.
If you know of the proper people or channel to propose this idea, please feel free to do it. I will do everything I can to help. This is the least I can do to show my appreciation for all the sacrifices that they make for this country.
