Just one year into law school, he joined the Navy, where he was assigned to the U.S.S. Pidgeon. By 1928 he had completed his service, was admitted to the Missouri Bar, and joined his father's legal practice. In 1940, Stanley was elected to the Kansas State Senate as the representative for District 4, Wyandotte County. Soon afterward he was called to active duty as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. His service in World War II took him to England where he participated in the planning and preparation for the Normandy invasion, and to France where he served until November 1944 with the Ninth Fighter Command. Afterward, he returned to Kansas City to resume private practice with his father. On June 25, 1958, Stanley was nominated by President Dwight D.
