I have no idea what the average salary (pay) was for GI's during WW2, and doubt that anyone can come up with an answer -- but I CAN tell you that when I went into the service in 1943 I was paid $50.00 a month. Remember, however, that that $50 was worth a lot more in those days than it is today. As I passed up the ranks I did get advancements, but I can't remember any amounts. Sorry! vcs

Earning a certificate in GIS is not the same as GIS certification. Unless the certificate program you attended results in a higher degree such as a Bachelor's or Master's degree, there are no initials you can place after your name. GIS certification is a fee-based process currently handled by the GIS Certification Institute (GISCI), that evaluates the GIS proficiency of an individual by assessing their experience, education, and contributions to the GIS industry. Those individuals awarded certification by the GISCI may place the acronym GISP (for GIS professional) after their name.
