Unveiled on Veterans Day 1959, the 1,440,000-piece mosaic features Roman numerals representing the commencement and end dates for World War II and the Korean Conflict:
MCMXLI (1941); MCMXLV (1945)
MCML (1950) and MCMLIII (1953)
Lewandowski also constructed a four panel mosaic honoring the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard for the 20th anniversary celebration of the War Memorial Center. It resides above the Honor Roll Reflecting Pool in the WMC’s inner courtyard.
