Re: Audentes Fortuna Iuvat


When I did research on the theme, I found a rich history behind the phrase, including the poet Virgil, the Aeneid and Heracles (who slayed the hydra).

So that's the route I took in a very busy week.

I hope y'all like it.

Awesome!!! I was thinking of that story, when they announced it last week. My doodles took me in another direction; but I am glad you did it!!! your design is great!

As an ex member of the 80th Juvats, I would love to see this print and I would wear it with pride. Rich history in the saying indeed.

Searched for this in the catalog, but doesn't seem to be available-- gone forever? any chance of ordering somehow? REALLY like the design.

I'm sorry, we did not print this design, perhaps the artist has submitted it elsewhere?
