A Vietnam Veterans Memorial
B Korean War Veterans Memorial
C World War II Memorial

The World War II Memorial took its place on the National Mall in 2004. The memorial consists of 56 pillars representing the states and territories, and bronze bas-relief images that convey the story of the conflict in both Europe and the Pacific. At the center of the oval-shaped memorial is the Rainbow Pool and a ring of fountains. But perhaps its most prominent feature is the Freedom Wall, on which is set a field of 4,048 stars, each representing 100 American soldiers who died in World War II.

To the west of the memorial is the Reflecting Pool and the Lincoln Memorial. To its east lies the Washington Monument.

The correct answer is World War II Memorial.
