American involvement in Belgium during the First World War was diverse and extensive. Before the United States' official participation in April 1917, thousands of Americans were already active on or behind the front lines of occupied and unoccupied Belgium, be it as journalist, diplomats, aid workers, nurses, surgeons or soldiers in one of the Allied armies. In 1918, four US divisions passed through Flanders. Some of their casultaties were given a final resting place in Waregem after the war, but an even larger number were repatriated to the United States or to a country of origin. 

in this new List of Names essay, for the first time, the In Flanders Fields Museum brings together all American casualties in a historical analysis and examines in detail the lasting legacies of US-Belgian relations through the prism of the First World War.
