John Harris, 60, was raised in downtown Cleveland and joined the Navy in 1980, serving one year stationed at Great Lakes. Harris, who is homeless in Southern Humboldt, said he came to Stand Down to see if he could get his less-than-honorable discharge reversed but "they're saying it can't be changed." He said he left the service after the Iran Hostage Crisis, which he thought was a sham to get Ronald Reagan elected president. "I seen it was phony," he said.
