  • Just a side note of interest: In Spanish "siempre" means always and "fe" means faith.

  • Semper Fi, short for Semper Fidelis. Always Faithful. (Fidelis is the root for "fidelity" which means faithfulness.)

    It's the Marine Corps motto.

  • Semper Fi is short for "Semper Fidelis" which is Latin for "Always Faithful"
    It is the Marine Corps motto (which is part of the Navy. NCIS is Navy)
