One of many unofficial mottos of the US Navy. It translates from latin to "Always Strong." It bears close resemblance to the Marine Corps' "Semper Fidelis," but is not as widely used as the Navy has no official motto and instead several other unofficial mottos such as Non Sibi, Sed Patriae which actually does translate to "Not for ourselves, but our country."
Come on Son, Semper Fidelis means "Always Faithful" and you think Semper Fortis means "Not for ourselves, but our country?" Where did all of those extra words come from?
