Born on March 4, 1948, in Nova Scotia, Canada, Guy was one of two sons of Douglas E. Dickie and Jean Dickie of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, who enlisted in the US Marine Corps in Buffalo, NY, on July 7, 1966. He arrived in Vietnam and was assigned to Company A, 1st Battalion, 9th Marines, 3d MARDIV (Rein) FMF.
In February, during Operation SCOTLAND, the Battalion was deployed to the Khe Sanh Combat Base in northwestern Quang Tri Province, and PVT Dickie's platoon was dug in on Hill 64 when in the early morning hours of February 8, 1968, the Marines' position came under a heavy NVA attack. When the battle ended, twenty-five Marines were dead, one of whom was Private Dickie, killed as a result of multiple fragmentation wounds to his body from hostile grenade fragments. Another twenty-nine of the defenders were wounded during the enemy assault.
