Excerpt from TheBlaze
Written by Dave Urbanski
At least 1,000 veterans from all over New England descended upon Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, Sunday to protest the school’s controversial decision to remove its American flag from campus.
“I was in Iraq 18 months. I got hurt, spent time at Walter Reed,” veteran David Soucy told WWLP-TV. “I came home and there’s no way I’ll let anyone take down the flag, no way. It means a lot to me and my brothers.”
The school had first lowered its American flag to half-staff over violence that followed the election of Republican Donald Trump to the presidency. When the flag was burned on the eve of Veterans Day, Hampshire College decided to remove the flag and all other flags.
