Semper Fi: "Billy G"
Hallo Billy
I am from South-Africa and like the Marines and all the movies they make about them,but if I may ask....what does Semper Fi actually mean. Just curious.

Semper Fi is the shortened form of Semper Fidelis. And of course it means "Always Faithful. For Marines it mean Faithful to our country, our brothers in arms and to the Corps." To a Marine it is not just a motto, it is a way of life. Once a Marine, always a Marine. OORAH. My Avatar says it all, Thank you.
