16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A New Marine surveying his high school football field

This photo shows a young man who just graduated from Boot camp and is now a Marine, coming back home to see his old high school football game. He used to play football every Friday night on that field and now sees it differently as he is now a Marine. Life changes, but the American dream can still be a reality.
