Ardennes Cemetery is situated near the southeast edge of the village of Neupre (formerly Neuville-en-Condroz), 12 miles southwest of Liege, Belgium. Highway N-63 from Liege to Marche or Dinant and Paris passes the main entrance.
The Ardennes American Cemetery, 90 ½acres in extent, is one of fourteen permanent American World War II military cemeteries constructed on foreign soil by the American Battle Monuments Commission. The 1st Infantry Division liberated the site on 8 September 1944. A temporary cemetery was established on the site on 8 February 1945.
After the war, when the temporary cemeteries were disestablished by the Army, the remains of American military Dead whose next of kin requested permanent interment overseas were moved to one of the fourteen permanent cemetery sites on foreign soil, usually the one which was closest to the temporary cemetery.
