National War Memorial – Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

The National War Memorial (also known as The Response), is a tall granite cenotaph with accreted bronze sculptures, that stands in Confederation Square, Ottawa, and serves as the federal war memorial for Canada. It was unveiled by King George VI on 21 May 1939.

Originally built to commemorate the First World War, in 1982 it was rededicated to include the Second World War and the Korean War. In 2000, the Canadian Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was added to the memorial site and symbolizes the sacrifice made by every Canadian for their country. (Source:Wikipedia)
