SemperVerus is Latin for Stay True, taking its significance from 1 Timothy 4:16 — “Stay true to what is right….”
We encourage you to use SemperVerus as your personal motto, the definition of which is a short phrase that encapsulates the ideals guiding an individual, family, or institution. To that end, we encourage you to wear the SemperVerus wristband at all times to remind you throughout your day to Stay True.

Having a personal motto is important to keep you directed toward your goals, remind you of your values, and help strengthen your character. A simple motto will help you jog your conscience to remember in an instant what’s really meaningful.
The United States official motto is In God We Trust, which fits so well with the SemperVerus ethos. That spurred us to create the following list of mottos used by the US Armed Forces (and a few other countries’ military units) that synchronize well with SemperVerus objectives. Consider them in light of your own personal goals.
