Rob,
I think you mean 'Gung Ho'.
Just for fun, I looked it up in the American Heritage Dictionary (yes I know
I'm a Limey).

"Earlier Gung Ho, motto of certain U.S. Marine forces in Asia during World
War II, from Chinese (Mandarin) gonghé, to work together (short for
gongyèhézuòshè, Chinese Industrial Cooperative Society) : gong, work + hé,
together."

So it's a very LFS thing,  'Work Together!'  'Gung Ho'.

Best wishes,
Richard.
