Wayne "Gunny" Harmon (R)  for  U.S. Congress (IN-7th) 2018


 As a 5th generation Marion County Resident (6th generation Hoosier starting from Clark County in the 1850's), I have seen and heard a lot of stories about this county. The 1st generation of my Indianapolis' family resided near Riverside Park on Udell Street.

 As for myself, I have always called Indianapolis my home and now residing
 on the east side area. From growing up in the Brightwood and Brookside
 neighborhoods to graduating from T.C. Howe High School and Indiana
 University, I have seen this district evolve in many different directions.  The
 values and loyalty that I have learned from Howe H.S. carried over into my
 service in the U.S. Marine Corps. After fighting in Iraq and retiring from the
 Marines in 2005, I am now back home in Indiana and continuing my service
 in local government.

I was born here in Indianapolis, Indiana along with my brother and sisters. 
 As a kid growing up in Brightwood and Brookside neighborhoods, my first
 elementary school was IPS #54. Twelve years later I  graduated from
 Thomas Carr Howe High School with great memories of running cross
 country, wrestling and football (FF).

 After High School, I became a 2nd generation Marine by following in my
 father's footsteps and enlisted in the Marines Corps.  As I travel up and
 down the Pacific Rim, I was afforded the opportunities of international 
 travel and experiences throughout my life.

 In the middle of my career, I was able to return home and attend Indiana
 University in Bloomington.  At Indiana University, I obtained a double major
 by studying Criminal Justice and East Asian Studies (Japanese Language).

 After returning home to family and friends, I continued my fight for justice
 by being a probation and parole officer for the citizens of Indiana.  As
 a Probation Officer, I personally conducted Revocation Hearings against my
 own probationers for failure to comply with their probation. I have and will
 always continue to fight for Justice with the same integrity that I had when
 I was in the United States Marine Corps.
