In the town of Waregem rest 368 American dead from WWI who fought in the final offensive to liberate Belgium. The Flanders Field American Cemetery is the only World War I American cemetery in Belgium. It lies on a battlefield where the 91 st Division fought during the Ypres-Lys offensive from October 30 to November 11, 1918. The American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) maintains the cemetery.

We will highlight the personal story of some of the soldiers buried in the Flanders Field American Cemetery.
