U.S. Marine to meet FBI agent who saved his life in a 1997 kidnapping case

13 Aug 2019 | 1st Lt. Robert Vachon 2nd Marine Logistics Group

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.
