Abstract. This paper describes the axiological reference system of the US military subculture, verbalized through signs of language and culture.

It concludes that such linguistic means and forms, representing basic components of the GI axiological system of values, include social dialect lexical units, phraseological locutions, military cadence calls, recruiting slogans, military units mottos, clich?s, army toasts, texts of the precedent genre (anecdotes), etc. The paper is addressed to philologists and broad audience.
Key words and phrases: , , GI, , , ethnos, US army subculture, GI, soldier, axiological reference system.
