Ohio Secretary of State joins the Army Reserve
Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose takes the Oath of Enlistment at the Columbus Military Entrance Processing Station in Columbus, Ohio on March 1, 2021. LaRose joins the Army Reserve roughly 12 years after having left the Army to pursue an education, a family and career, but he always missed it. “Being a Soldier is part of who I am. It’s a part of me at my core.”
March 2, 2021 - It is not uncommon for a Soldier to join the Army, do some time, get out to pursue other ventures and come back in. What is unusual is when that Soldier comes back after 12 years, college and a family, having risen to the position of Secretary of State (of Ohio). Frank LaRose never second guesses his past decisions nor does he look back at the past, with one exception – leaving the Army.
