On Sunday a group of liberal students at Hampshire College successfully got US flag removed from campus, then 1,000 military veterans showed up, they gathered in Amherst, MA to teach the students a lesson. For many veterans, the flag means a lot to them.
Veterans and soldiers are directly related with many things, they play an important role in many aspects of our life. It is said that men’s wristwatches have their roots in military watches. During the end of 19th century, watches were specifically made for women as an accessory, they were first worn on the wrist of men by soldiers in battlefields, for practical life and death reason, men had to wear what was considered accessory for women.
