"In this ceremony we honor the memories of fellow A&M men and women whose death prevents their answering Roll Call at this annual Muster. The Roll is a symbolic Roll Call of all students and former students whom death has taken from our ranks, but whose memory lives on in our hearts. As each name is called, a comrade will answer: Here!"
Each Aggie's name is a link that goes to his or her online Silver Taps page. While this list is updated once a day, the Silver Taps obituaries on our News page are updated throughout the business day.
To add a name for the April 2021 Roll Call, please email SilverTaps@AggieNetwork.com.

- It is traditional for the names of Aggies killed in military service-related actions to be called at all Musters. To date, no such deaths have been reported since the 2020 Muster.
- The annual Roll Call for the Absent includes the names of all Aggies whose deaths have been reported to The Association since the last Muster. Some of those deaths happened more than a year ago but, because the passing was not previously reported, the name is included on this year's roll.
- In some cases, most commonly when an Aggie passes shortly before April 21, the family elects to defer their loved one's Muster recognition to the following year. In 2020, there were more deferrals than usual due to the COVID pandemic.
ATTENTION, MUSTER CHAIRS: New names are constantly being added to the Worldwide Roll as The Association receives new reports every day of Aggies who have passed away. After you pull the Roll to call at your local event, you should check back regularly through April 20 to see if we have added any new names relevant to your geogaphic area, Class year or interest group.
