CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. --
U.S. Marine Cpl. Stewart Rembert is scheduled to attend FBI Special Agent Troy Sowers retirement ceremony as a special guest Friday at the FBI Field Office in Knoxville, Tenn.
In one of Sowers’ first cases as a new field agent, he rescued days-old Rembert from a kidnapping in 1997.
Rembert was kidnapped from a hospital in Tacoma, Wash. by a woman impersonating a nurse who took him from his parents. Sowers discovered Rembert days later in a box behind a dumpster.
Sowers invited Rembert to his retirement to meet for the first time.
“I have never met this guy, never got to thank him for saving my life,” said Rembert. “I’m a United States Marine. Getting my Eagle, Globe and Anchor was the best thing that happened to me, and it wouldn’t have been possible if I wasn’t found.”
Rembert is motor vehicle technician with Combat Logistics Battalion 8, Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group.
The ceremony will be held at 10 a.m on Aug. 9 at the FBI Field Office in Knoxville, Tennessee. Cpl. Rembert and Special Agent Sowers will be available immediately following the ceremony to answer any related questions.
