In the fall of 1965 West Point cadet Tom Carhart and five of his classmates from the U.S. Military Academy pulled off a feat of extraordinary ingenuity, precision, and raw guts: the theft of the billy goat mascot from their rival, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, just before the biggest football game of the year.
The U.S. forces in Vietnam were then at two hundred thousand and growing, with casualties spiking, and the men in West Pointâs class of 1966 were well aware that they would serve, and quite possibly die, in that far-off war. But West Pointâs motto, âDuty, Honor, Country,â affirms that its graduates will always obey the decisions of our elected government, and the men of â66 were dutiful: of the 579 who graduated, 30 died in VietnamÂ and roughly five times that number were wounded. Since this would be the menâs last Army-Navy football game as cadets, they wanted to go out with a bang, not a whimper.
Carhart tells the incredible true story of how, in stealing that Navy goat, the cadets unknowingly reenacted the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece from Greek mythology. The caper is interwoven with an insiderâs narrative about the private lives of six West Point cadets in the early 1960s, who, against all odds, hurled their last hurrah of triumph to America before flying off to fight its wretched war in Vietnam.

"I went to Yale. There, a bulldog was the mascot, but somehow, the jowled bulldog's status got diminished over the years, while Reveille lives on, sparking the Aggies on to greatness. Go Reveille!"âGeorge H. W. Bush, former President of the United States
Reveille needs no introduction to Aggies; she is the First Lady of Texas A&Mâsurrounded by traditions, honored and privileged anywhere on campus. She is a goodwill ambassador as well as a mascot, a symbol of Aggieland as well as the highest ranking
officer in A&M's Corps of Cadets. Her lifestyle, accessibility, and popularity combine to make her, above all, among the most widely beloved dogs in the country.
This richly illustrated book traces the history of Reveille, from the first mutt of uncertain origins to Reveille VII, an American collie of purebred lineage and scientific breeding. It tells the collective story of the lives of Reveille at Texas A&M: Reveille's life in the dorm and her privileges in classrooms; the dog-napping by in-state rivals that made national news in the 1990s; and her effect on the lives of those who have shared the campus with her, cared for her, and loved her.
A visible part of university life throughout the year, for many students Reveille is the pet they left at home. Rusty and Vannessa Burson have gathered anecdotes, statistics, and pictures that tell the little-known story of a well-known dog: her origins, tales and
traditions, antics and adventures, and evolving role. It is the story of special dogs, caring people, and a legacy shaped through the decades.
The text is accompanied by formal portraits of the successive Revs and candid snaps of her at work and at play. Further spice is added through interspersed facts and figures and quotes from the many people whose lives she has touched.
Like Lassie, Old Yeller, and Rin Tin Tin, Reveille appeals to any dog loverâbut she has a special place in the hearts of her fellow Aggies.

Packed with full-color photos detailing the many individuals to portray the Chief, the different costumes that have been used, and the dance that thrilled Illinois fans at major sporting events for parts of nine decades, this unique hardcover book is the perfect way to remember and honor a symbol that celebrated the Native American heritage of the state of Illinois.
