Silver Taps To Honor 5 Aggies

Scot Walker '90 March 1, 2019 2:42 PM updated: March 11, 2019 9:19 AM

Silver Taps will be observed March 5 to honor the memories of five recently deceased Aggies.

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 five Aggies will be honored at Silver Taps in March:

  • Kristen Lane Moss '15 of Bryan, who died Dec. 15. She graduated in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in communication; she had re-enrolled in an undergraduate bachelor's program in health.
  • Grant Jacson Hernandez '21, a business major from San Antonio who died Jan. 6.
  • Noah Joseph Gunhouse '19, a construction science major from Spring who died Jan. 16.
  • Hannah Michalski '20, a veterinary medicine student from Grand Prairie who died Jan. 19.
  • Van Le '20, a petroleum engineering major from Vietnam who died Feb. 10.

These Aggies' names 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.)
