I remember "Skeeziks" as a young man in New Britain, CT ..... shy.... polite .... helpful to my wife and I and the first Baby sitter my son knew. I was in the Army at the time and stationed in New Britain on an Air Defense site. My wife and I kept track of Stanley and his siblings over the years and were saddened when his Mom called to tell us of his sacrifice. He represented the best of our country and I still think of him often.
