This has absolutely nothing to do with Latin, but... I recently took a trip to Belton, Texas to visit some friends and traveled up Hwy 36 and thought of you and your aviator. There were signs on the highway that said, "Dedicated to the Texas 36th Division." A proud unit.

Tex legislature designated SH 36 in 2000. I remember they named some other roads for divisions and people that session. SH 36 and SH6 stick out in my mind because I was working for TxDOT and we had to put up the signs.

I took 2 years of latin, but because I don't remember much of it, I was not designated latin translator. This is the best I can do: Ferio neco.

I'll ask my dad and see what he comes up with, he has a degree in Latin.

Good! Ask him what "I'd hit it" and "In before the Lock" are in Latin, too.

This is very (well, sort of) important and I will tell you why later if I can.

My girlfriend is working ont his right now.... Even with a Masters in Classics, it takes a bit to wrangle English idiomatic speech into another language!
