Annual Aggie Muster in Brady April 21

Former students of Texas A&M University will assemble in Brady April 21 for the annual Texas Aggie Muster to honor all Texas Aggies who have died within the last year, according to Larry Smith, muster chair. Various muster activities will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 21 at the Family Life Center of the First Baptist Church in Brady. All former and current students, their families and friends of Texas A&M are invited to attend. The Aggie Muster tradition, which spans more than a century, will be observed in more than 300 locations around the world. These muster gatherings have been held in many unique places, ranging from battleships and foxholes during World War II to ballrooms and steakhouses today. Over the years, Aggie Muster has grown to be one of Texas A&M’s most revered traditions. Muster honors the memories of A&M men and women whose deaths prevent them from answering roll call at this year’s gathering. The roll call is a roster compiled of all former and current students who have died over the past year. As each name is called, a friend or family member will answer “Here,” symbolizing that their memory lives on in the hearts of Aggies everywhere. Muster is more than just a ceremony’it is also an annual way for Aggies to renew the loyalty and unity which constitute the foundation of their friendship with each other, as well as their love and devotion for their school.
