Veterans and Military Service Members

 

Message to the LCCC campus and community:

We understand that the recent events in Afghanistan are especially difficult for veterans, military personnel and their families. Adding to the heartache is the devastating loss of U.S. Navy Corpsman Maxton Soviak of Berlin Heights, who was one of 13 U.S. service members killed in a terrorist attack at Kabul Airport. Max’s family has a long-standing connection to LCCC and he attended EHOVE through Edison High School where he graduated in 2017. We know that many of you knew him personally and are directly impacted by the tragic loss.

Lorain County Community College stands ready to support you. Whether you are a student, community member, veteran or active-duty service member – we are here for you. Please visit LCCC’s Veterans Services office or our Advocacy and Resource Center to find support tailored to meet your needs.

As the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces continue to sacrifice to keep us safe at home, Lorain County Community College remains committed to serving those who serve our country – today and going forward. Our continued thoughts are with the Soviak family, service members and veterans, and all those affected by the situation in Afghanistan.
