Members of the Rat Mass of 2022 plus 3 were awakened at 5 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 5, to begin breaking out of the Rat Line. This year, Breakout was held entirely on post, as rats did physical challenges in the Corps Physical Training Facility and Cocke Hall. They also participated in two rucksack marches around post. The rats then crawled across the Parade Ground to barracks where they removed sandbags blocking Marshall Arch. After one last sweat party in barracks, they received their name plates from their dykes. That evening, the Class of 2025 had dinner in Crozet Hall with guest speaker Reggie Webb ’75. The class then joined together in barracks for its first Old Yell.
