A friend asked me to translate this:

Serving with pride
(meaning in the military)
And as it's for a tattoo I want to make sure I got it correct.

My friend suggested: ar seirbhís le bród
Would that work?

I suggested:
Ag seirbheáil airm go bródiúil

Ag freastal go bródiúil

Ag freastal le bród

Ag déanamh mo chuid seirbhís airm go bródiúil.


Which one is better, or does anybody have a better one?

Thanks.

Funny to see you asking for advice. :D

All of those seem good to me but I usually like things short and sweet, and as literal as possible if it's allowed.

Ag freastal le bród

Dictionaries suggest esp. "seirbhís airm a dhéanamh" for serving in the army.
So I don't know if freastal or seirbheáil is used in this sense, too.
Because of that I'd use your friend's suggestion

ar/i seirbhís (airm) le bród,
