American Legion Post opens on Painesville college campus

PAINESVILLE, OH (WOIO) - Grand opening Monday for an American Legion Post at Lake Erie College.

American Legion Post 807 is named after Andy Nowacki, a Lake County Marine who was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in Feb. 2005.

This Post is the first in Ohio, and only the third in the country, to be run by students and located on a college campus.

Lake Erie College Officials say this is just one of the many ways they are supporting veterans on campus.

Lance Corporal Nowacki, 24, was also a former Grand River Police Officer
