FBI Knoxville Special Agent in Charge Troy Sowers (retired): Completely surprised they pulled this off. I did not know it at all I'd wanted something very simple. I asked for coffee and donuts and they shocked me.

U.S. Marine Corps Corporal Stewart Rembert: It stirred up a lot of happiness and privilege honestly to like be able to meet this man. I was just really ecstatic that they would come to me like 22 years later and like when he's retiring. I just thought it was like a great thing like to come down and meet him.

Sowers: I'm extremely proud for him. I'm proud of anybody who serves others above themselves, and the fact that he is willing to serve this country in the United States Marine Corps I think is just a perfect example of what we expect of everybody.
