    Okay NCIS fans, I may be showing my ignorance here but I'm going to have to ask. In the show, they use the word "simpify" and it's driving me nuts as to what it means. Since I have heard the word used on NCIS, I've heard it elsewhere. Please someone, tell me what it is. An acronym maybe?


    Thanks to one or all who can answer this question for me! Smile

    Hi Think you may mean " SEMPRE FI" , which is the motto of the US Navy. It is short for Sempre Fidelius (I thnk) and means Always faithful.
