From an early age Frank LaRose committed to putting the needs of others before his own and leading by example. Frank is a decorated combat veteran, member of the U.S. Army Special Forces, and family man who currently serves as Ohio’s 51st Secretary of State. He works every day to build a thriving democracy and prospering economy for every Ohio family.
Frank grew up working on a small family-owned farm outside of Akron and first learned about his duty to serve others and live with honor as a Boy Scout. He eventually earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Inspired by the example of his scout leader, a WWII concentration camp liberator, he enlisted in the US Army and left for basic training just weeks after his high school graduation.
