It was quite an impressive sight, witnessing a virtual a sea of red, white and blue as 1,000 men and woman stood side by side waving Old Glory and proclaiming in both speeches and song what it means to be living in the greatest country on earth.

The one thousand strong mostly veterans came Sunday in a massive show of solidarity to remind those professors and academics that good men and woman through the years have died in numerous wars and engagements under that one single banner that defines us as Americans, and allows us to live free.

The peaceful demonstration was in response to Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass., who’s students apparently couldn’t handle the election of Donald Trump and began burning tiny American Flags in protest, then decided to fly “Old Glory” at half-staff, apparently not concerned about the significance of such an egregious act, and then finally removing the American Flag completely from the school.

The brief video shows hundreds of veterans chanting “U.S.A, U.S.A” and asking school official’s to reconsider the removal of the American Flag.

Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash said during a recent interview: “There were a range of views on campus, including people whose experience growing up have made the flag a symbol of fear, which was strengthened by the toxic language during the campaign, and people for whom the flag is the symbol of all that’s best throughout the country.”

Here is more footage of veterans protesting to have the flag put back up:
