Monday, April 22, 2019 – Softly Call the Muster – Here
Over the weekend Texas Aggies across the world celebrated the camaraderie of the school by attending a Muster in their area. At each Muster ceremony around the world, a speaker addresses the crowd before the “Roll Call for the Absent.” Names are of those who died will be read, and as each name is called a family member or friend will answer “Here” to show that Aggie is present in spirit. Then, a candle is lit.
The Campus Roll Call in Reed Arena is the largest Muster in the world. Tonight President George H. W. Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush will be recognized this year. After all of the names are called, a rifle volley is fired and then a special arrangement of Taps is played.
For it’s The Spirit can ne’r be told; It’s the Spirit of Aggieland.
