“Press On” – The Motto
The motto of 5th Battalion, 159th Aviation Regiment, expresses the spirit to continue the mission, no matter the adversary. I’ve adopted this motto to my life not only because it was instilled through service to my country: “I will always place the mission first. I will never accept defeat. I will never quit,” but because of the motto’s roots in my faith as a Christian. The motto “Press On” was derived from Philippians 3:14 “I press [on] toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
