Stanley J. Sokolowski III

July 30, 2011


Stanley Sokolowki was 26 years old when he died. The Ocean NJ native was a volunteer firefighter, lifeguard and a civilian emergency responder in Iraq. His life long dream was to be a professional firefighter. After returning from Iraq as a civilian he joined the Army and went back. It is far more common for people to first go to Iraq in the military and then return as a civilian contractor, but Stanley was not common. There just are not many vegans in the military, and now there is one less. His family and friends miss him.
