Aggies Sing "War Hymn" On 12/12/12

On this 12th day of December at a little after noon the 12th Man made another show of support that spanned to global proportions.

It's a moment of time we won't see again for a long, long time.

Aggies here and everywhere are honoring the 12th Man tradition and listened to "The Aggie War Hymn" at 12:12 on 12/12/12.

Local radio stations aired the university's school song including Candy 95 .1 FM near the Memorial Student Center.

Students were excited to sing all at once.

"Just to see everyone do the "War Hymn" a few minutes ago and Johnny [Manziel] coming home. I'm kind of glad I woke up from my post-finals nap for this," said Marquis Alexander, the Texas A&M Corps Commander for the Corps of Cadets.

Aggies around the world were encouraged to wear their maroon and white on this day.
