The Flanders Field American Cemetery is the only World War I US cemetery in Belgium. It lies on a battlefield where the 91st 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. The Visitor Centre, in the former Superintendent's quarters, opened in spring 2017 and is devoted to the US involvement in Belgium during WWI. The activities of the four US divisions that fought in Belgium are explained, selected stories of soldiers buried in the cemetery are highlighted, and the ways in which we commemorate those soldiers, then and now, are described.
