Service mottos

Discussion in 'Veteran's Forum' started by DesertShark1963, May 12, 2004.

  1. I remember from my days of wearing Army green that the Army's motto is "This we'll defend."

    And I think just about everyone knows that the Marine Corp's motto is "Semper Fidelis."

    I haven't a clue as to what the Air Force's and the Navy's mottos are (if they even have mottos). Does anyone know?
