Yank, the Army Weekly was a magazine published by the United States 
military
during World War II. The idea for the magazine came from Egbert 
White, who had worked on Stars and Stripes during World War I.

The term "G.I. Joe" was first used in a comic strip by Dave Breger that
was a regular feature in the magazine. A popular “morale booster” was
the inclusion of a stage or screen star pin-up girl.
