During that same year the young attorney entered the US Army as a private. He served in Europe during WWII and achieved the rank of Captain before being discharged in 1946. After the war he returned to Cambridge where he practiced law and became interested in politics. After serving three years in the Ohio House of Representatives, the Republican was elected to Congress and served for three terms from 1955 to 1961.
