The World War II Memorial is a memorial of national significance dedicated to Americans who served in the armed forces and as civilians during World War II. Consisting of 56 pillars and a pair of small triumphal arches surrounding a square and fountain, it sits on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on the former site of the Rainbow Pool at the eastern end of the Reflecting Pool, between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. The World War II Memorial opened April 29, 2004. It was designed by Friedrich St. Florian, former chief of the Rhode Island School of Design.
"Here We Mark the Price of Freedom" The Memorial has over 4.000 gold stars representing one star per 100 Americans who lost their lives during the war.
This scene is the east view facing the Washington Monument and is hand-crafted from ¾” thick wood with a beautifully detailed front design and a short description on the back. You can set it neatly on a shelf, desk or narrow ledge such as window, door trim, or wainscoting. Group it with other Cat’s Meows to create your own memory of the special places you have visited. Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, taking up residence within the design. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow!
