I need some Latin translated

My team captain dug up my team's old flag. This is from the west coast paintball club, the Wild Geese.

Now before I continue, I need to say something...
Please don't start posting in this thread on how the team stole the name from the original east coast Tournament team. I already went through that when I posted in the "west coast region" part of the forum that I was looking for other members of the west coast San Jose Wild Geese Paintball Club. I don't mean to sound bitter. It just clogged up my old thread and made it hard for me to reach some old team members.

Anyway, there is some latin on it, but I can't seem to be able to find anyone who can translate it. So I'm posting it on here for a little help.

There are online transalator programs that do this kind of thing. I plugged this into one and got "That not Wedlock Us". So, maybe it means "We aren't married", or "To Not be Married", "In order to keep us unmarried" etc. Something along those lines.

It means Don't F*ck With Us.

It was sometimes used unofficially by military units as an "in the field" kind of motto.

That makes more sense! The translator I was using thought wedlock=sex.

Hmm...weird and interesting. I'll have to ask the original members about that one.

Wow you know whats funny?

You guys being west coast and all.. did you copy the promo patch from the movie " The Wild Geese" Or did you copy my teams patch?

As seen here in the upper left.. http://wildgeeserecon.com

And here.. In my new run of shirts for the team, granted its a little more steril for the sake of my plotter's well being.

Isn't it "Wild Geese Recon"

And I've heard 1982 and 1983, which is it?

And your team's patch looks remarkably similar to that of 5 Commando of the war for the Belgian Congo in the 1960's. That Commando was the inspiration for the book and Hollywood movie. I assume the movie was the inspiration for your team's name (and all teams using that moniker)?

Earlier than that, 1600s they were Irish who left and fought for various other countries:

The Wild Geese shall return
and we'll welcome them home
So active, so armed, so flighty a flock
was never known to this land to come
Since the days of Prince Fionn the Mighty. 17th century.
