Softly Call the Muster..

"Muster is one of the most sacred and time-honored traditions of Texas A&M. Aggies set aside the day of April 21st each year to pay homage to their classmates and alma mater. This day is a time to remember our days at A&M, honor those Aggies that are no longer with us, and enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie we have as members of this school. There are over 300 Aggie Musters held worldwide each year, with the largest ceremony being the one current students host in Aggieland. During the Roll Call for the Absent, the names of the students being honored are read and families and friends will answer "here" and light a candle to signify that even though they are not with us in person, they are always a part of the Aggie Spirit."

It is traditions like this that make me proud to be an Aggie.
"Softly call the Muster, let comrade answer 'Here'..."
