From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Fogy \Fo"gy\, n.; pl. {Fogies}.
     1. A dull old fellow; a person behind the times,
        over-conservative, or slow; -- usually preceded by old; an
        {old fogy}. [Written also {fogie} and {fogey}.] [Colloq.]
        [1913 Webster]
  
              Notorious old bore; regular old fogy. --Thackeray.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The word is said to be connected with the German vogt,
           a guard or protector. By others it is regarded as a
           diminutive of folk (cf. D. volkje). It is defined by
           Jamieson, in his Scottish Dictionary, as "an invalid or
           garrison soldier," and is applied to the old soldiers
           of the Royal Hospital at Dublin, which is called the
           Fogies' Hospital. In the fixed habits of such persons
           we see the origin of the present use of the term. --Sir
           F. Head.
           [1913 Webster]
  
     2. (Mil.) In the United States service, extra pay granted to
        officers for length of service. [Colloq.]
        [Webster 1913 Suppl.]
