Gung ho is an Anglicized pronunciation of "gong hé"...which is also sometimes Anglicized as "kung ho". "Gong hé" is a shortened version and slogan of the "gongyè hézuòshè"...or Chinese Industrial Cooperatives, which was abbreviated as INDUSCO in English. The two Chinese characters "gong" and "hé" are translatable individually as "work" and "together"." See more
