Hi Eve, I was stationed in Reykjavik for 20 months during WW2 servicing fighter aircraft of the 33rd and 50th Fighter Squadrons. I was too busy doing that to travel around the country seeing the sights so it was wonderful enjoying your article and photos. I met my future wife, Asta Olafsdottir Benjaminsson, there and we were married in Alabama after I returned to the States and sent for her. Greatest move I ever made. We had 57 years together and I returned, with our children, in 2002 to bury her in her family plot in Reykjavik. I have many fine in-laws there today.
There have been many changes in Iceland since the war. Thanks for showing them to me.
