Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.

Qui non est hodie cras minus aptus erit :
Non sibi sed suis :
In pace, ut sapiens, aptarit idonea bello :
Age. Fac ut gaudeam :
Post proelia praemia :
Auribus tenere lupum :
Navigare necesse est :
Qui nimium probat, nihil probat :
Transit umbra, lux permanet :

Bast's sig roughly translated:

Quae not is today tomorrow little fitted will be : Not to them but suis : Upon pace , when wise aptarit proper to wage war Age. Fac when to rejoice : After warrior to send forward : Ear tender wolf : Voyage necessary is : Quae too much from probo-are , nothing from probo-are : Crossing shade lux to stay to the end :

Abremylin's meager rewrite for english speakers:

Tomorrow will be little fitted to what is not today;  Not to them but to US; Wise find the right time to wage war; Know when to rejoice; After your champion, go forward; tender wolf ear; Travel is necessary;  What is too much from the "probo-are", nothing from the "probo-are"; Crossing the shade of the light is to stay until the end.

Good effort. :)

Rough translations... The intention is the real meat as with any translation.

Qui nimium probat, nihil probat : One who proves too much, proves nothing
Qui non est hodie cras minus aptus erit : He who is not prepared today will be less so tomorrow. (Ovid)
Non sibi sed suis : Not for one's self but for one's people
In pace, ut sapiens, aptarit idonea bello : In peace, like a wise man, he appropriately prepares for war
Age. Fac ut gaudeam : Go ahead. Make my day!
Post proelia praemia : After the battles come the rewards
Auribus tenere lupum : I am holding the wolf by the ears
Navigare necesse est : Sailing/Navigation is necessary.
Transit umbra, lux permanet : Shadow Passes, Light Remains
