      "There is no official motto for the U.S. Navy. "Non sibi sed patriae" (Not self but country) is often cited as the Navy's motto, however." https://www.history.navy.mil/research/library/online-reading-room/title-list-alphabetically/c/customs-traditions-navy.html#navymotto
  • "Always strong." U.S. Navy. All Navy-related branches are in Latin. U.S. Marines - "Femper fidelis" (Always faithful). U.S. Coast Guard - "Semper paratus" (Always ready). US National Guard - "Always ready, always there" (note that it's not in Latin). The use of Latin as naval motto dates back to the medieval period, when navies of European countries were more involved in the invasion of other countries, where vernacular langues varied, but the use of Latin was widespread amongst leaders. Much of US military tradition in the 18th Century was directly borrowed from the British, because the vast majority of the first generation of military leadership in the USA had served in the British military.
  • The only one that's awesome is "Semper Fidelis" 'Cause Marines are awesome. And that's not boasting, because we're that good. - "You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth.....and the amusing thing about it is that they are." - Father Kevin Keaney - 1st MarDiv Chaplain

      There would be no Marine boots on foreign soil if it weren't for The Navy getting them there. Boast all you like you'd be nowhere without us! Good thing most of us can cooperate and not denigrate one another.
