|1.||non sibi, sed patriae|
The unoffical motto of the navy. Translates to "Not for ourselves, but our country"
the navy has no offical motto but they also use semper fortis (always courageous) and paratus et potens (ready and able) and as stated above non sibi, sed patriae
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?
