Description: Three-quarter-length portrait of four young men wearing identical sweaters over shirts, neckties, and trousers. Each sweater has a shield with stripes, stars, and the words "ALL AMERICA" on it. One man has two stars on his left sleeve. Another has three stars. Each man wears a ring, probably a class ring, on his left hand. Most are smiling. The background is out of focus.
