Cadet Dies From CS Motorcycle Crash

A motorcyclist involved in a wreck on Monday at Texas and Southwest Parkway has died.

Corps of Cadets Commandant Joe Ramirez announced on his Facebook page the victim as 20-year-old Caleb Tate, who was from Seguin.

The Corps will hold Echo Taps Thursday evening at 10:30 p.m. on the Quad in Tate’s honor.

From the Commandant’s Facebook page:

It is with extreme sadness that I confirm the death of cadet Caleb Tate ’15, a member of the Corps of Cadets, as a result of a traffic accident Monday evening in College Station. Caleb was a junior University Studies major in the College of Liberal Arts from Sequin and served as the Training Sergeant for Company P-2. He was pursuing a Navy contract. All who knew Caleb remember him as a sociable, confident young man who had a resilient work ethic and a good sense of humor. He was a very well-liked young man, and his loss will affect all of us for a long time to come.

I want to offer my condolences to Caleb Tate’s family, friends and fellow cadets on his loss. We all stand together as Aggies today as we mourn the loss of one of our own. Caleb Tate will be missed by all of us.

As an Aggie, I hope the Tate family will take solace in knowing that Caleb will never be forgotten, and that the unique Aggie spirit of camaraderie that is such an integral part of Texas A&M and the Corps of Cadets will hold fast for them in this very difficult time.

“We are the Aggies, the Aggies are we. True to each other, as Aggies can be.”
