The Aggies March

This weekend in the Metroplex (the Dallas, Ft. Worth area) The University of Arkansas and Texas A and M.
competed in football. So, on Saturday morning there was a parade of the A and M Corps of Cadets in downtown Ft. Worth.. Marching in full uniform, it was quite moving to see 2400 clean cut young people. We have good friends that are A and M alumni, and they invited us to go downtown to see the parade.
Here they come. That is their mascot Reveille, a Shetland Sheepdog 

At one time it was an all male school. That has changed.

The band was of course there too, and they were amazing.

This young female cadet, band member, had no idea that an butterfly had hitched a ride.

The football game was very exciting and went into overtime.
A and M pulled it out

  1. Everyone loves a parade and uniforms so it's a good combination.

  2. This is so unusual to see, we never have those parades here. Only at rare occacions with veterans.

  3. We were there! With friends - both husbands are Aggie grads, bonus our son is also an Aggie ('13) - he played a trumpet in the band - it was a fun outing and great game.
