War Comes Home: Dottie Guy

Dottie Guy served in Iraq in 2003 as a member of the military police.

Dottie Guy served in Iraq in 2003 as a member of the military police guarding high-value detainees. She sits on the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Commission and was the Outreach Coordinator for Iraq and Afghanistan-era Veterans at the Oakland Vet Center.

“I’m a black woman and I held a job that wasn’t traditionally a black woman role.  I was military police. There weren’t very many black women M.P.s in my unit.  So it was kind of empowering to be in this position.  It was really good to be a little bit of a role model.”
