The best I have heard was from the WWI troop supply wagons were called Support And Grub wagons or SAG wagons. - TF
An old timer that organizes/runs bike tours in the Midwest told me the term originated during the Civil War. SAG stands for Socks And Grub. He's a history buff and said during war times, a clean/dry pair of socks were worth their weight in gold.

I've tried to verify this, but can't find anything.
