Spent almost four years in the U.S. Army. Vietnam veteran. Married with two grown children, a girl and a boy. I taught my daughter Chess at a young age and she took off like a rocket from there. I retired from Ford Motor Company in 2002 and enjoy playing Chess on line because you can make the moves whenever you want and aren't tied to a board for long periods. My game is VERY rusty, but I should improve with time.
