SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Mayor Sarno will join a group of local veterans on Sunday, who plan on protesting Hampshire College’s decision not to fly the American flag.

The Mayor announced his plans to protest in a news release sent to 22News on Saturday:

“Mayor Domenic J. Sarno will attend in support and stand in solidarity with our cherished veterans and our American flag in protest of Hampshire College’s continued refusal to fly the flag, which is so disrespectful to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in order for all of us to live the lives we lead. God Bless America.”

Hampshire College made the controversial decision to remove the American flag earlier this week, after a different flag was burned on campus, following the presidential election.
