Robert Guy was determined to join the Marines, and he worked a variety of jobs while earning a high school equivalency certificate so he could qualify. "I was so proud of him because he didn't give up. He kept trying, and it took two years before he could enlist," said his father, James. Guy, 26, of Willards, Md., died April 21 in a non-hostile incident. He was based at Camp Lejeune. Guy, known as Bobby, was known for his friendliness and sense of humor. He liked to shoot pool as a kid and play video games in a small arcade. He dropped out of high school but was determined to earn his GED so he could join the Marines. "He did make some wrong choices, and he did his best when he grew up a little bit," said Cory Perdue, a high school friend. "Going into the Marine Corps was just the next step for him improving himself." "I never saw him work at anything so hard his whole life," said his mother, Ann. "He really wanted this."
