    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?

    Air Force - "Uno Ab Alto" (One over all)
