World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a First Lieutenant in the United States Army in Company G, 118th Infantry, 30th Division. His highest rank achieved was Lieutenant General in the South Carolina ARNG. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on October 8, 1918 near Montbrehain, France. His citation reads "In command of two platoons, 1st Lt. Dozier was painfully wounded in the shoulder early in the attack, but he continued to lead his men, displaying the highest bravery and skill. When his command was held up by heavy machine-gun fire, he disposed his men in the best cover available and with a soldier continued forward to attack a machine-gun nest. Creeping up to the position in the face of intense fire, he killed the entire crew with hand grenades and his pistol and a little later captured a number of Germans who had taken refuge in a dugout nearby."
