Christian Action League
November 11, 2019
On this blessed Veteran’s Day, the Christian Action League of North Carolina wishes to express its profound appreciation for the contributions of America’s men and women who have served in the United States Military.
Military slogans tell us a great deal about the people who served in uniform to protect our freedoms. Here are a few:
Army – This We’ll Defend
Navy – Non sibi sed patriae (Not for self, but for country)
Air Force – Above All
Marine Corps – Semper Fidelis (Always Loyal)
Coast Guard – Semper Paratus (Always Prepared)
National Guard – Always Ready, always there
U.S. Military Academy (West Point) Duty, Honor, Country
U.S. Naval Academy – Ex Scientia Tridens (From Knowledge, Sea Power)
U.S. Coast Guard Academy – Scientiae Cedit Mare (The sea yields to knowledge)
Green Berets – De Oppresso Liber (To liberate the oppressed)
Army Rangers – Sua Sponte (Of Their Own Accord) and Rangers Lead the Way
Army Corps of Engineers – Essayons (Let us try)
Navy Seals – The only easy day was yesterday
Seabees – Construimus, Batuimus (We Build, We Fight) and Can Do!
God bless all those who honorably served and sacrificed for our country.
Thank you — thank you for taking a stand for America – thank you for wearing that uniform, which covers up all differences of class, ethnicity, and stands for our highest ideals – thank you for your willingness to lay everything on the line for the promise of liberty.
We promise to strive to live worthy of the freedoms we are tempted to take for granted every day – the freedoms you gave to defend.
