13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
West Point Graduation Ceremony

At West Point on graduation day, after taking the oath and tossing their caps in the air, cadets react at the moment they achieve their hard-won dreams-- as graduating cadets at the U.S. Military Academy have done for over 200 years. After graduation, these young soldiers become commissioned officers in the United States Army.
