Each Throwback Thursday the Citizen Tribune shares a photo from the formative years of the G.I. Generation. Born from 1901 to 1926, the G.I. Generation is also known as the Greatest Generation.

The G.I. Generation was molded by the first World War, the Roaring ’20s and a time of massive growth, expansion and technological wonders.
