Thanks to two Missouri National Guardsmen, John Robert Reece was born safe and sound this week. Staff Sergeant William Stewart and Sergeant Matthew Bennett helped get John Robert’s first-time mom Cynthia Reece to a hospital Tuesday in Warrensburg despite blizzard conditions over Missouri. The two guardsmen escorted the ambulance carrying Cynthia Reece seven miles, which took them almost an hour to cover because of the harsh conditions.
