Latin term or phrase: fidelis ad aeternam
?
Thomas
English translation:semper fidelis
Explanation:
it is a motto of a unit in Italy and this is what I would use;
fidelis ad aeternam means nothing without "vitam"
but vitam aeternam also means life after death.
If you want to say 'forever faithful" I would say "semper fidelis"

SOrry, but I don't have time to find references.

I have studied Latin since Middle school and Latin is very close to my native Italian.
