In my years of service, I've served in units with great mottos, including
"De Oppresso Liber" - Liberate the Oppressed,
"Strike and Kill",
"Penetra Le Tenebre" - Penetrate the Shadows (or Darkness),
(and when absolutely required, "We Transmit").
(There is one other but, for personal reasons, I will not share here.)
More than words, they represent ideas of service, action, and history that serve to bind past, present and future menbers. This is part of what i ponder on Veterans Day.
What unit mottos from your Service most resonate in this way to you?
(Actual unit/regiment mottos, please. Not the trite bumpersticker nonsense. We can do that on another day).
