Capt. Christopher L. Curry developed the winning phone app for the “war fighting” category in the Commandant’s Innovation Challenge. The award's announcement was made Dec. 14, 2016. The challenge required the participants to develop an app for the following categories: war fighting, lifestyle and physical fitness. His app, “Blue Order,” includes an iPhone global positioning system to provide real-time satellite and topographic imagery. It also includes maps and charts to allow users to develop combat-related scenarios for practical application during exercises. Curry is a part of Headquarters Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force based in Okinawa, Japan. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Amaia Unanue)
