A Maroon Wall

Pin It

Very proud to be a Texan…

Earlier this month hundreds of students from Texas A&M gathered to take a stand against hate and anti-war protesters. Together, in true Aggie spirit, they formed a human wall (a maroon wall, to be exact) around the funeral service of a soldier to protect his family from a planned protest by Westboro Baptist Church members, a group that regularly stages protests around the country.

The family of Lt. Col. Tisdale made an addition to his oituary post-service:

As of the afternoon of July 5, 2012, it can be added that Lt. Col. Roy Lin Tisdale, Texas Aggie Class of ’92, is survived by the Maroon Wall, a tribute symbolic of the love, respect and honor of former students for their fellow Aggie. No better example can be found of just what it means to be part of the Texas Aggie family. The most powerful statement of all against hate was made, in complete, reverent silence.
