I am posting this information, in case anyone missed the front page article in the Albuquerque Journal on Friday September 21, 2018 regarding the recent weekend shooting death of a U.S. Army Captain Daniel Chamberlain Lehman of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The police have yet to identify a suspect or a motive in the shooting. Daniel was a veteran of Afghanistan and was assigned to the Fort Carson 4th Infantry Division’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team. Lehman’s obituary said he was a West Point graduate with a double major in nuclear physics and philosophy. Daniel graduated from St. Michael’s High School in Santa Fe, was fluent in Mandarin and Spanish and a champion high school chess player.

I researched Daniel’s chess history on USCF. In 2006 he won the reserve section on the NM K-12 Scholastic Chess Championship with a score of 4.5 out of 5.0. A notable win in the tournament was his third round win against Doug Thigpen who later went on to become the overall State Champion.

My respects and condolences goes out to his family for his service to his country and I hope that they catch the person who killed him. A true warrior on and off the board!
