Who is Eric Price?
I'm a small-town, corn-fed, country boy from Ohio. My high school was located in the middle of farmland and when I graduated, there were only 86 of us that year. After the first gulf war kicked off, I joined the military as soon as I could. As a soldier, I honed my security and law enforcement skills. It was my honor to be personally trained by 4 ranger qualified individuals, which led to my later accomplishments.
I married my high school sweetheart shortly after enlisting. We'll be celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary this year. She has been the rock in my life and together
we've built the most incredible family. We have been blessed with four amazing children, who I couldn't be more proud of. Our eldest taught me how to have fun. Her sister showed us the importance of compassion. Our youngest daughter only graced our lives for three short years, but in that blessed time she taught us how much peace and unity matter. Read her story here. Our son keeps me busy coaching his football team and working on being a good example for him.
I spent 25 years in the Air Force fighting for your freedoms and rights. I worked in law enforcement, sensitive weapons security, antiterrorism, active shooter defense planning, weapons employment and instructional systems design. I have co-authored doctrine for the most sensitive resources of American Military might. My work led to the Air Force's approach to ground based warfare being updated and standardized.
Over the course of my career, I've been in charge of base security, sending troops to work presidential security, and the K-9 units that search for bombs and/or drugs. I’ve, personally, led presidential motorcades. When the need arose I partnered with other US military branches, as well as the militaries of other countries. My work in security went beyond people to include securing American financial resources. In my years of service I recovered stolen money and the revenue from stolen American goods.
As a veteran who worked to secure this country, I know how important Unity, Service, and Accountability are to the success of a nation. I also deeply believe in the US Constitution and the role it plays in protecting the rights of ALL Americans. When elected, I will bring these experiences and this knowledge to the state house in Columbus.
