after getting an email from someone and seeing a phrase in latin I googled the meaning, so here ya go, the Coast Guard mantra:

Semper Paratus (Latin for "Always prepared") is the official slogan of the United States Coast Guard. A march by that name is also the official march of the Coast Guard.

Veni, Vidi, Gauisus Sum.

I came, I saw, I partied.

Wow, Latin class was a long time ago.

As I understand it,"Fortitudine" was the original slogan of the Corps,always vigalant or something like that.

This one was on one of the u-boats I served on."power to repel the darkness".Trust me,that was an understatement.:/:
