Area Aggie Muster set April 21 at 44 Farms

Former students of Texas A&M University will assemble in Milam County on April 21 for the annual Texas Aggie Muster to honor all Texas Aggies who have passed away within the last year, announced Muster chair Nathan Bland.

Muster activities will begin at 6 p.m. with a meal followed by visit with Red Cashion, former NFL Referee, at 44 Farms near Cameron. All former and current students, their families and friends of Texas A&M University are invited to attend.

The Texas Aggie Muster tradition, which spans more than a century, will be observed in more than 300 locations around the world. These Muster gatherings are held in many unique places ranging from battleships and foxholes during World War II to ballrooms and steak- houses today, Bland said.

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 Muster. 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 for each other as well as their love and devotion for their school.
