GI is short for Government Issue.
However, these are all common interpretations or misinterpretations:
In other contexts:
WW2 The soldiers joked that everything was government issue and the label stuck.
American fighting men were called G.I. Joe by themselves and other combatants.
A nickname for a United States Army soldier, usually believed to be "Government Issue", but actually G.I. - short for "galvanized iron" a trach can used in the military.
WWII US GIs & Vietnam GIs were basically the same. Exceptions were the following: 1. WWII/Vietnam GIs wore the same M1 steel helmet. 2. WWII/Vietnam GIs initially wore leather combat boots until the jungle boot was issued after 1965. 3. WWII GIs carried lighter back packs/Nam GIs carried much heavier ALICE infantry back packs because they were in the field longer. WWII GIs were advancing continuously and thus could pack their gear onto the transports for the next offensive; Nam GIs were stuck on a continuous tour of field duty (they weren't advancing anywhere; Nam was a body count war not a ground gaining war). 4. WWII GIs were issued 16"/10" long bayonets/Nam GIs were issued 6 1/6" long bayonets. 5. WWII GIs carried semiautomatic rifles (M1 Garands and M1 Carbines)/Nam GIs carried fully automatic rifle (M16s). 6. WWII GIs fired .30 caliber ammo (30-06); Nam GIs fired .308 (M60 Machine gun) and .223 (M16). 7. WWII GIs used wood & steel ships, planes, small arms, boats, etc.?Nam GIs depended heavily upon aluminum and plastic planes, small arms, boats, etc. (the US Navy Swift Boat & US Army M551 Sheridan tank & M16 rifle were mostly aluminum).

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.
TeleCAD-GIS was created in 2002-02.
