The Flanders Fields American Cemetery is the only World War I US cemetery in Belgium. It lies on a battlefield where the Ninety-first Division fought during the Ypres-Lys offensive, from 30 October to 11 November 1918. The majority of the 368 fallen soldiers lost their lives during those last days of the war. In spring of 2017, a visitor centre devoted to the US involvement in Belgium during WWI will open in the former Superintendent's quarters. The activities of the four US divisions that fought in Belgium will be explained, some stories of soldiers buried in the cemetery will be highlighted, and the ways in which we commemorate those soldiers, then and now, will be described. During the yearly Memorial Day on 28 May they pay tribute to the men and women buried and memorialized in Waregem.
