Guy enjoyed skating and building models. He attended John Bartram High School and spray-painted steel cylinders before enlisting in the Army in January 1969. The 18-year-old corporal was a light weapons infantryman assigned to Company A of the 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry, 196th Infantry Brigade, but never told his family he had been in combat many times.
