Dr. James Hu Honored at Aggie Muster
Each year, Aggies gather to celebrate Muster at over 300 locations around the world. Each of these celebrations is unique, reflecting the preferences and personalities of the communities and volunteers that step forward to host them. From the small county gatherings with barbecue and beer to the larger formal events hosted in hotel ballrooms, the observances have become as diverse as Aggies themselves.
The largest Muster is held on the campus of Texas A&M University at Reed Arena. Although, with coronavirus looming over us, that didn’t stop this Aggie tradition and Muster was held virtually instead on April 21, 2020.
Every Aggie’s name reported to The Association was called and answered “here” for during the third Worldwide Roll Call for the Absent. Continuing a tradition that began in 2018, The Association called all 1,600-plus names on the Worldwide Muster Roll and answered “here” for each in a three-hour reading. Dr. James Hu, was one of the many whose name was called during this time. Dr. Hu passed away on January 23, 2020 due to complications of liver disease.
