AA 2/50: SUAVITER IN MODO FORTITER IN RE

 

That was the motto for the USS Thomaston (LSD-28), which in Latin means “gentle in manner, resolute in execution.” Can’t front on that approach of being mild and not so overly harsh in your strategy, but admirably purposeful and unwavering in your execution.

ANYTIME ANYWHERE 2/50.
