There is not a university or college in the USA with more tradition than Texas A&M. I am proud to say that many of my closest friends are graduates of Texas A&M. In fact, my wife is an Aggie grad. Among  the many traditions associated with A&M is the annual Aggie Muster.

Former students of Texas A&M University will assemble Saturday afternoon at the CottonPatch Party Ranch, 4459 Farm-to-Market Road 952, six miles outside of Yorktown, for the annual Texas Aggie Muster to honor all Texas Aggies who have passed within the last year.

Muster activities, including refreshments and fellowship, will begin at 5 p.m, according to the Victoria Advocate. The Aggie Muster ceremony begins at 7 p.m.

Aggie Muster has grown to be one of Texas A&M's most revered traditions. Muster honors the memories of Aggie men and women whose deaths prevent them from answering Roll Call at this year's Muster. The Roll Call is a roster of 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.
