Addenda/Notes 

Stan passed away 8 May 2012 in Arizona.  

I had the great honor of interviewing Stan and speaking with him on many occasions as I assisted him in writing up his Reflections piece for Air Force Together We Served that was also featured in Voices.  He was a fine gentleman.  I remember my days as a young man in England, hearing that expression when a soldier, airman or sailor passed on that  he had "Gone West". Wishing you a good journey, Stan.
