Thanks to "massivereader" on the forum, we now have an answer! The story was apparently pulled from SOL by the author and published on smashwords. Here is the URL. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/258317
From the description, I'm quite sure that this is the one I'm looking for. I'll likely buy it for my Kindle. Thanks to everyone that replied.
I also had a fellow point me to stories on SOL by Mike Cropo. I checked his page out and the stories look interesting.
