“Our small town raised $23,000,”
she said. “After an article ran in the
Dallas Morning News, we raised all
of the money. In one day we got
$14,000 for Jennifer.”
Jennifer said the people who do
nated money to help her are amazing.
“It started out being people we
know,” she said. “But the story got to
a bunch of old Ags, and they sent a
lot of money. One couple was plan
ning on going on vacation, but in
stead they sent me the money they
had saved, saying my trip was more
important than theirs.”
Jackson will be in Argentina un
til Dec. 5. She expects to be back at
A&M to start the spring semester.
“My doctor said it’ll take about two
years to get everything back,” she
said. “But he said he’d have me ready
to come back in time for classes, I’ll
just have to take a lighter load.”
Jackson said that during the past
two years she remained optimistic
about the situation. She said the sup
port from her family and friends has
helped her cope with the accident.
“I don’t have much of a
choice,” she said. “I can’t let this
get me down, and I have never re
ally had the time to let it get me
down. I’ve been too busy trying to
Jackson said the accident has brought
some positive things into her life.
“The accident has definitely
brought my family a lot closer,” she
said, “and I have become more em-
pathetic to people with disabilities.
Little things like going to restau

Jackson said she is looking for
ward to going to Ar gentina.
“I have never been out of the
country,” she said. “It will be neat to
be somewhere completely new, and
I am ready for it to happen.”
Jackson plans to graduate in Summer
1999 and pursue a career in banking.

The PMC unit did a precision
mounted drill and a half-section
drill, Simone said.
Williams also fired the cannon
and was presented the cannon shell
in appreciation for his contributions.
The cannon, fired at events on
campus and at football games, is a
Model 1902. The cannon was found
in the late 1970s at a Bonfire cut site
near Easterwood Airport.
“The Spirit of ’02” was first fired
on the Quadrangle in September
1982. A plaque stands on the Quad
to commemorate the event.
In 1984, the cannon became a
part of Aggie football tradition
when the PMC fired the cannon
when the team scored.
David Wood, section chief of
PMC and a senior construction sci
ence major, said the cannon is tak
en to many places on campus, in
cluding the Sam Houston Sanders

ball games and under the century

Wood said the cannon is the
center of many Bryan-College

“Eighty elementary school kids
came out,” Wood said. “We showed
them the wagon, the barn, the sad

Membership in PMC is open to
all cadets at the beginning of their
sophomore year, Wood said.
Sophomores are the work force
behind the PMC. Their duties in
clude cleaning the tack, maintain
ing the saddles and equipment,
cleaning the barn and the general
upkeep of the horses.
Junior cavalry members feed the
horses every morning at 5:30 and
every afternoon, including over the
holidays. Juniors serve as the lead
ership force in cavalry plans. Se
niors are the executive force who
handle administrative tasks and
initiate plans for the unit.
Blake Henshaw, second pla
toon officer and a senior agricul
tural development major, said
people often ask about the re
quirements of the group.
“People sometimes think the
cavalry is another unit within the
Corps,” Henshaw said. “But, every
one comes from different outfits.
Any cadet can join during their
sophomore year. It just takes a lot of
time and hard work.”
PMC leaders said that hard
work is the major requirement for
Jody Pollard, half-section
sergeant of PMC and a junior agri
cultural development major, said
PMC is an organization that pro
duces life-long friends while pro
moting Texas A&M.
Pollard said the group is gaining
respect throughout Texas and the
United States because of the hard
work and dedication of its mem
bers and leaders.
“The cavalry teaches extreme
time management,” Pollard said.
“You have to be a cadet in the
Corps, as well as spend hours prac
ticing. PMC becomes a time man- «j
agement tool for sophomores and Jlc j
it continues through their junior
and senior years.”
PMC practices each day at ’"j
“Fiddler’s Green,” a 30-acre plot
of land including fenced pas- K, |
tures, a catch pen, a barn, a tack
building and office, a hay bam
and the cannon garage.
In 1979, former A&M President
James Miller gave PMC the land, lo
cated at Turkey Creek Road and FM ? , 1
2818. Members named the proper- J
ty after a cavalry term for a “Caval- 1
ryman’s true home.”
The horses are usually donated
and belong to the University for use
by the PMC. The cavalry has 34
horses and two mules. Cadets are
responsible for the horse care.
Chad Steitle, operations officer
of PMC and a senior bioengineeiMi^i
ing major, said PMC continues to
be a symbol of the traditions and yJ
heritage of A&M.
“Everyone looks at the cavalry
and sees tradition,” Steitle said. “It 1
was started up again in 1972 be
cause people felt its absence.”
All cavalry members do not
come from an agricultural back
ground, Steitle said, who considers
himself a “city boy.”
“I came out here because of the j
people,” he said. “Hard work is I
looked upon well and it pays off in
the end. The people you work with |
all have the same ideals as you do.
