Ubi concordia, ibi victoria
(Where there is unity, there is the victory.)
- Roman proverb

Nemo me impune lacessit
(no one provokes me with impunity)

Volens et potens
(willing and able)

(Peace is sought by war)

(Thus we labour, but not for ourselves)

and the new U.S. Army slogan:
Risk Your Life for Freedoms No One Appreciates!

(i hope this doesn't violate the "English only" rule)
(i hope this doesn't violate the "English only" rule)

This does not violate the rule.
As long as there is an English translation it's OK.

The English only rule is ment for discussions only.
I don't want any discussions here that I can't understand and moderate...

So thanks for these latin quotes/mottos/proverbs..

Latin is cool! :D

yeah, latin kinda adds a bit of class to the whole deal, i hear that a lot of people say that about me, too ;)

not quite
In nomine veritas et aequitas. It's not a motto though...not a military one at least. it's mine.

"in the name of truth and justice". the grammar is probably a little off, i don't know Latin.
in the name of truth and equality, if I remember my Latin correctly :)
Ex Unitate Firmitudo
-to stand united and strong!
-323 ATC sqn

The old RAF classic
Per Ardua Ad Astra
-Through difficult ways to the stars!!
De Oppresso Liber I believe means Freedom for the Oppressed. My last latin class was 2 years ago so I'm a little rusty. According to my shirt that is the motto for the US Army Special Forces.

Sure those are some pretty neat mottos, but the question is.. can you pronounce them??
Four+ years of latin has to be good for something doesn't it? :D Finally found a use!
