I GOT YOUR SIX SPONSORS
I got your six is a military saying. In the military, “I got your six” means I got your back. The saying originated in World War I, when fighter pilots would reference the rear of the plane as six o clock versus the forward facing position of 12 o’clock. Today, the saying represents loyalty, cooperation and camaraderie often found in military culture even after returning home.
