The National War Memorial is hard to miss as it is in close proximity of Parliament Hill. It is a tall granite cenotaph with bronze sculptures and serves as the federal war memorial for Canada. During my stay in Ottawa, I visited this monument on several occasions. It was originally built to commemorate World War I, and in 1982 it was rededicated to include World War II and the Korean War. In 2000 the Canadian Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was added to this monument. On my last visit to this memorial I witnessed a ceremony involving a Korean delegation, the head of which placed a wreath at the Tomb. It was a very moving ceremony.
