The Marine Corps has many rich traditions. At the top of the list is Semper Fidelis, Latin for “Always Faithful.”

The motto was adopted in 1883 and is defined here in quotes the Marine Corps website:

“Semper Fidelis distinguishes the Marine Corps bond from any other. It goes beyond teamwork – it is a brotherhood and lasts for life.”

“It guides Marines to remain faithful to the mission at hand, to each other, to the Corps and to country, no matter what.”
