Softly Call The Muster…

April 21, Aggie Muster.  Today is the day we remember our fallen comrades.There are many traditions at Texas A&M but none more special than Aggie Muster.  It gives me chills to remember standing silently hearing the names of those that had passed during the previous year. You gather in the auditorium, all lights are turned off.  Each person that has passed has a representative to answer there name when called, this is known as roll call.  Each representative holds a candle that represents the deceased when their name is called that person answers “here” their candle is lit; this continues until all have been accounted.  If you can’t be on the main campus for the Muster there are celebrations everywhere there are Aggies.  In fact there are over 400 Musters held across the world. It is said that if there is an Aggie within 100 miles of you, you get together, eat, remember and celebrate your time at A&M.  This is just one of many things that makes Texas A&M unique.

Muster is a time to look to the past, present, and future…not only to grieve but to reflect and to celebrate the lives that connect us to one another. A gesture so simple in nature yet so lasting in spirit, Muster is the lasting impression every Aggie leaves with us; it reminds us of the greatness that lies within these walls, of the loyalty we possess, of the connection that binds us, and of the idea that every Aggie has a place of importance – whether they are present in flesh or spirit.

It’s hard to just tell you about Muster, it’s really something you have to experience.  However, I think this video might help you visualize the spirit and traditions we hold so dear as Aggies.
