FRANK LAROSE HAS ALWAYS FELT A DEEP CALLING TO SERVE.
Frank grew up working on a family-owned farm and stocking warehouses. He joined the Boy Scouts and developed a love for serving others after being inspired by his Scout leader, a WWII veteran and concentration camp liberator. That’s why, after graduating from Copley High School, Frank enlisted in the United States Army.
FRANK LAROSE BECAME THE YOUNGEST SERGEANT IN THE 101ST AIRBORNE.
He deployed to the U.S. southern border, fighting the flow of illegal drugs into the country. He later led a NATO peacekeeping mission in Kosovo and, nearing the end of his enlistment, joined the Army National Guard. He became one of the top 20 percent of recruits selected to complete Special Forces training, and, in 2003, he earned the prestigious Army Green Beret.
FRANK LAROSE SERVED HIS COUNTRY & RETURNED HOME TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOM.
He served on the frontlines of combat and in other critical posts around the world, earning numerous commendations and medals including four Army Achievement Medals and two Army Commendation Medals during his years of active service. For his exemplary service in Iraq, he earned the Bronze Star. After seeing the cost of freedom abroad, Frank returned to Ohio to protect our liberties here at home.
FRANK LAROSE BUILT A CONSERVATIVE RECORD OF LEADERSHIP AND RESULTS.
He became a conservative champion in the state senate, earning support from the Ohio Farm Bureau to the Fraternal Order of Police. In 2018, Frank became our Secretary of State and won re-election with more votes than anyone in the history of the office. He’s made Ohio a national leader in election integrity and helped open record numbers of new businesses. His most important job, though, is to be a loving husband to his wife, Lauren, and a devoted father to his three young daughters – Hadley, Ellie, and Lainey.
