Although Suresnes American Cemetery was the first ABMC permanent cemetery in Europe, the chapel was not completed until 1932. Architect Thomas Harlan Ellett placed the white colonial chapel on the slope of Mont Valerien. It overlooks the town of Suresnes and showcases a panoramic view of Paris. The subdued light of the entry highlights the marble altar and the mosaic of a symbolic Angel of Victory who is offering a palm branch to graves of the fallen. Francis Barry Faulkner, a mural artist who helped organize and train camouflage specialists during World War I, created this piece. The four bronze plaques list the names of 974 men missing in action, or buried at sea.
The two loggia and memorial rooms were added after World War II
