Semper Paratus


Coast Guard

As we were discussing Veteran’s Day, my 19 yo son began trying to sing the theme songs of all the branches of the military.  He had learned them last year in choir class.  As he, along with the rest of us, was stumped on the Coast Guard song, he searched for it on his phone.  As it played, I heard the Latin phrase Semper Paratus.

My online Latin class just learned Vocabulary D, with the verb paro, parare, paravi, paratum.  Semper means always  in Latin, so what does  Semper Paratus mean?  Any guesses, Latin discipuli?

Post your guesses, using your Latin name, along with any other military mottoes that you would like to challenge us to translate.
