Silver Taps, usually held on the first Tuesday of each month during the school year, will not be observed Feb. 5. The families of three students whose deaths were reported to the university since the most recent Silver Taps elected to defer the observance until March.
Silver Taps is a tribute paid to an Aggie who, at the time of his or her death, was enrolled in graduate or undergraduate courses at Texas A&M. Silver Taps was formerly observed as soon as possible after the death of an Aggie. Today it is held on the first Tuesday of each month from September to April, if necessary.
These four Aggies will be honored at Silver Taps in March:
The names of Moss, Hernandez, Gunhouse and Michalski have been added to the roll call for the 2019 Aggie Muster. Because they were students at the College Station campus when they died, their names are eligible to be called at the student-run Muster at Reed Arena on April 22. (See the criteria for the Reed Arena roll call.) Their names, along with every other name on the 2019 worldwide roll call, will also be called during the live reading that will take place on April 21 at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center. (See the current 2019 roll call.) Their names are also eligible to be called at one or more of the hundreds of hometown Musters that will take place around the world. (See the list of Musters currently registered for 2019.)

Silver Taps is one of Texas A&M's greatest traditions. We express our sincere appreciation to donors to The Association for helping support it financially.
