Softly call the Muster tonight

Posted by   + Show Post

It's my first year posting here.


My Universitity has a tradition called Muster.



We meet with fellow Ags, wherever  we are, and share stories about our time at A&M and say here for the Ags that have passed.


This is tonight.   We are going to the Muster at A&M.  It is the most important tradition of A&M.

It may seem odd 95% of you, but it is what we are.   We remember those before us and we support those after us.  I love Texas A&M for this.

Yep


I love martinis

Quoting katy_kay08:

Did you drink after?  

Quoting Tanya93:

No



You can drink, but you usually don't until after it.


It was awesome tonight

Quoting katy_kay08:

Is there drinking involved at this thing?

Oh, see, I totally didn't catch the 'no longer with us' reference. I thought 'not here at the moment'... which is a rather different usage!

Probably, I can blame the 3 games I umpired today for my slow brain...

Quoting Tanya93:

Depends on where you are


But yes, you meet in a room, auditorium, banquet  hall, whatever and say the names of people in your area that have died.



Quoting LindaClement:

I think I'm never going to get this :D

So, y'all just stand in a room and say people's names?

Quoting Tanya93:

It can be.  


Texas A&M is very proud of its graduates and loves making an effort that people know you graduated.

Muster is different.   We stand and say "here" for those Ags who have left us this year.   Yeah, I know it seems weird to many, but it truly is a movement that people who aren't Ags don't get. 

Quoting LindaClement:

yeah, I read that.... I just didn't understand at all what it was.

So, 'Ag' is 'a graduate'?

Quoting Tanya93:

A graduate of Texas A&M.   Tonight is Muster.  

It is the most important day for Ags.

Quoting LindaClement:

aIt doesn't seem odd, exactly... more 'I have no idea what you're talking about at all.'

I don't know what an Ag is.

And I'm sure it sucks that you're the only one who cares.

No, not really.

I was just explaining it
