Howdy NETC Aggies,
On behalf of the NETC A&M Club Board, I write to you today to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Muster ceremony in Northeast Tarrant County. Our ultimate purpose for Muster each year is to honor our fallen Aggie Comrades from the prior year to the fullest extent, and we felt like hosting an online event would not allow us to meet the standards that we hold ourselves to when putting on this event each year. The families of our 8 fallen from 2019 will be invited back in 2021, and any purchased tickets and donations will be refunded.
Regardless of this decision, please be assured that the name of every Aggie whose death was reported since the last Muster, will be called and answered with “Here” on April 21. Since 2018, The Association of Former Students has organized a live reading each April of the entire year’s roll, more than 1,600 names broadcast and livestreamed from the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center. Plans are in motion to ensure that the live Worldwide Roll Call takes place again this year, so we assure you that every name will be called on campus again this year.
Finally, as you know, when and how you Muster are not as important as that you Muster. With that in mind, The Association of Former Students strongly encourages you to follow the guidance from medical experts and federal, state and local officials and not gather for Muster on or around April 21. I encourage you to celebrate Muster this year by supporting your favorite local restaurant, spending this day with your family, and to “live over the days you spent at the A&M College of Texas.” We’ll see you again on April 21, 2021.
Thanks, Gig ‘Em, & Stay Safe,
Blake J. Wolf ‘14
NETC Muster Chair
