What's it mean?

The USS Carl Vinson's (CVN-70) motto is "Vis Per Mare" (Strength from the Sea)

So I think we can assume "Vis Per" can be translated as "strength from"

The Latin dictionaries I found on line define "dictum" as "formal statement, pronouncement; saying, maxim"

So maybe it means "Because we said so"?

Because we said so is a pretty good translation.  I couldn't find any translation exactly either but when I was putting together my brag jacket a few years ago I was reacquiring all the patches I needed.  When I got this one that was when I wondered what it really meant. I was told it meant strength through effort or something to that effect. 

I like "Because we said so".

Where did I hear "Hammer the bastards down" in reference to the Wing motto?



Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.

Everyone may have noticed that your web browser was forcing you to turn on Flash to see your badge. Adobe is doing away with Flash in a couple months so the Badges function will stop working completely then so we've removed that  feature from the main page.
