A soldier with a white armband is dressed in olive green uniform and grey helmet stands in a watchtower facing the viewer. Two small structures stand next to the tower surrounded by dry grass. A barbed wire fence separates the structures from the foreground of low grass. Tall trees in fall colors of red, orange, brown and green rise behind the tower in the background.
