  paulalbert: Much more important: David is a career U.S. Army officer, now a Lieutenant Colonel, and has served in Iraq. He is one of the strongest U.S. Army players, has played several times in the NATO championship, and has been active in organizing Army and other military chess events. He serves his country willingly and proudly. Paul Albert
May-23-08  Augalv: <He serves his country willingly and proudly. Paul Albert>

More than 150.000 iraquis have been killed since the US invasion of Iraq to conquest the country's oil resources.

You two should be proud.

  paulalbert: My statement about LTC David Hater was a tribute to him as an individual, not a political statement. Normally I would not even respond to a response such as that of Augalv, and I have no idea of what country he is a citizen. However, his response is totally irresponsible. To say that the motivation of the Iraq war is conquering its oil resources is patent nonsense. Also, I would ask, "how many of his fellow Iraquis did Saddam Hussein kill?" As Americans are about to celebrate Memorial Day, I remind everyone that freedom and liberty from tyranny are not free. My father, several uncles, and an aunt understood that when they served in World War II, as did I and several cousins when we served willingly and proudly in the military in subsequent years, and as does LTC David Hater. Enough said. I'd prefer on this site to comment primarily on chess topics. Paul Albert

How shortsighted can one be?

Jan-05-15  waustad: My only memory of him was when he was the TD for a tournament in Columbus where he put the wrong date in the ad in Chess Life.
Jan-05-15  zanzibar: A recent picture of him, in fatigues, can be found here:

http://www.army.mil/article/132764/... (2014-08-14)

Jan-05-15  zanzibar: From same article about 2014 NATO Chess Championship:

<Defying the introverted chess player stereotype, Hater, who works as assistant chief of staff at U.S. Army Cyber Command, and Keough, who is newly assigned to Fort Meade, view chess as a highly competitive sport that brings together international armed forces.

[...]

he official NATO Chess Championship began in 1989 with only four countries, including the U.S., represented at the tournament. The tournament was funded by the Department of Defense until 2011, but due to budgetary constraints, the U.S. no longer sponsors a team, said Hater.

Motivated by his love of chess, Hater decided to form his own team to represent the U.S. He worked with representatives of the NATO Chess Championship, the U.S. Chess Federation military chess committee and the Army to determine the proper protocol for creating a team.

"This year, everybody's traveling on their own dime," Hater said. "I worked through the military chess committee and we came up with a mathematical formula [for who should be on the NATO Championship Team], and it was objective. I weighted [players'] national ranking the highest, although there were some other factors."

As a nine-time NATO Chess Championship competitor and the U.S. team captain, Hater wanted to make sure the process through which he determined the team was as objective and transparent as possible. "[Hater] actually put out [an advertisement for the team] on uschess.org, which is the United States Chess Federation's website," said Keough, a six-time NATO Chess Championship competitor who recently placed second in the Atlantic Open chess tournament in D.C.

"If you're a military player, you don't have to be active duty; you can be Reserve as well." To prepare for the tournament, Hater and Keough will continue to study the strategy of top competitors.

"We may want to look at games that their opponents have played," Hater said. "So just like in the NFL where they watch film of their opponents, we like to do the same thing if we can get it."

Hater said that along with preparing for the tournament, as team captain he has other responsibilities, such as relaying the nuances of the tournament to his team and representing his players in disputes. However, Hater said he impresses upon his team that "they are all ambassadors of the U.S." in this tournament.>

Jan-05-15  zanzibar: Another picture of him, in dress uniform, can be found in the USCF article he wrote on the tournament:

http://www.uschess.org/content/view...

(The US scored Bronze).

Jan-05-15  zanzibar: I see that NATO Chess has its own page:

http://www.natochess.com/

And that all of the NATO Championship games are available for download:

http://www.natochess.com/games.html

Should <CG> gather 'em up?

(They seem to be missing from as a collection and/or tournament)

Jan-05-15  zanzibar: There are 66 of his games in <NATObase>.

As much as one is a clueless murricun.

Pathetic.
