Or:

"Though I pass through the valley of death, I shall have no fear.

For I am at 80,000 feet and climbing."



It's been said, but: "Be Prepared"

Also, I may be wrong about the Russian spelling, but: "Ni shagau nazad!"="Not one step back!"

According to ktroop.com, the motto was chosen In a contest in 1920. Captain John Merrill of H troop submitted the winning entry. So it's possible that Capt. Merrill served in France, and that's why?
