Iraq war veterans among new NYPD recruits
Two brothers from the Bronx who served in the Iraq war were sworn in as New York City police officers Tuesday morning.
Armando Guzman is a former Marine, while his brother, Robey, served in the Navy. They both returned from a year in Iraq and say they?re prepared to protect whatever community they?re assigned to, although the Bronx is their preference.
"Growing up in the Bronx, I saw a lot of people not being able to speak up for themselves, so as a police officer, I want to be their voice," says Robey Guzman.
The Guzmans are among 1,000 officers who graduated Tuesday at Madison Square Garden.
