A&M has used the current code of honor longer than three years. Before 2003 it was primarily professed in our Corps of Cadets and then became a university campaign to spread it across campus. So if it surprises you that our code of honor is essentially the same as West Point's code of honor, then it may also surprise you that the following also have the same code of honor: US Air Force Academy, US Naval Academy, The Citadel, Virginia Military Institute, other military schools, the Army, Navy/Marine, and Air Force ROTC units across the nation, Police academies across the nation, and even high school Junior ROTC units. In fact, almost everywhere you find a Corps of Cadets, you will find that they have the same or a similar honor code. Is that plagiarism, or is that a common idea and bond between military cadets across the nation?
