Ryan Kreider, the Texas A&M Cadet who saved school mascot Reveille from an oncoming SMU football player is receiving a gift from A&M's Corp of Cadets.

The Commandant of Texas A&M's Corps of Cadets, Brigadier General Joe E. Ramirez, wrote on Facebook:

"Cadet Ryan Kreider made ALL Aggies VERY proud today! What a selfless way for a cadet to take care of our beloved mascot, Miss Reveille.  As a result, the Commandant is going to buy Ryan's Senior Boots. Fellow cadets can give him junior/senior privileges as they deem appropriate, but I am so proud of what he did, that I'm willing to do something a little more 'substantial' to show the appreciation of ALL Aggies for his selfless act. Ryan, thanks for being such a superb example of what being a member of the Corps of Cadets and being an Aggie is all about! Your senior boots are now compliments of the Commandant! Well done, Ryan! Aggie nation is VERY proud of you!"

The generosity of the Commandant will save Krieder at least a grand as senior boots can cost over one thousand dollars!
