GI or G.I. is a term describing a member of the US armed forces or an item of their equipment. It may be used as an adjective or as a noun. The term is often thought to be… an initialism of "Government Issue" but the origin of the term is in fact galvanized iron after the letters "GI" that used to denote equipment such as metal trash cans made from it in U.S. Army inventories and supply records. During World War I, US soldiers sardonically referred to incoming German artillery shells as "GI cans". During World War I it was somehow assumed that GI stood for Government Issue and the term was applied to all military equipment and the soldiers themselves (another incorrect interpretation is General Infantry). The term reached even farther use as its usage spread with the American troops during World War II. A comparable nickname for a member of the British armed forces is "Tommy" or "Digger" in the Australian and New Zealand Armed forces. Government Issue. It stems from a casual joke amongst soldiers that they were property of the US Army. The GI in GI Bill means Government Issue or sometimes General Issue. At one time it stood for galvanized iron. Galvanized iron was used by the logistics services of the Armed Forces at one time.
The GI Bill provided many subsidies for veterans. Money for education was one of the most important. This was part of the effort to smooth the abrupt change to a postwar econo…my by improving the job skills (and therefore the incomes) of returning veterans.
