14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
"This Beach Is Mine"

This declaration was on the side of one of the military vehicles on the beach. I captured this image because of the Marine perched on the front of it attaching a flag and because of the unit's slogan: "This Beach Is Mine."
