Homecoming – Purple Veterans to be Honored

At Homecoming, there will be a pre-game cremony honoring Williams and Amherst Veterans.


On Saturday, November 14, Amherst and Williams will hold a pre-game ceremony honoring their alumni Veterans.

Veterans affiliated with either school will gather on their respective sidelines, walk to mid-field and meet for a brief ceremony followed by the playing of the National Anthem.

The Williamstown American Legion will provide an Honor Guard on the field for the 11:45 am ceremony.

Fantastic idea. Is this a first? Part of a tradition? The start of a new tradition? If not, it should be.

I am a member of the Williamstown Legion. There is significant forum there for outreach, given the commonality of Veteran status for Alumni and townies.

It would be great if they combined this event, and honored other Veterans from the towns as well.

I have always felt that the common area/ hall upstairs in the Williamstown Legion should have a wall that combines town and gown service profiles… and stress being a part of a larger purpose that brings people together…

This is good stuff. No doubt about it.
