NAVAL AIR STATION KEFLAVIK, Iceland – Navy Cdr. Todd Barclay (right), Naval Air Station Keflavik executive officer, presents the recently-lowered U.S. flag to Navy Capt. Mark Laughton, the unit’s last commanding officer on Sept. 30, 2006. The drawdown in the military presence in Iceland and closure of the base supports the ongoing Department of Defense transformation in the U.S. European Command area of responsibility. Naval Air Station Keflavik's mission stemmed from countering military threats during the Cold War. Changes in the international security environment and U.S. military doctrine require that U.S. forces adjust accordingly to meet the global threat, including providing a flexible response to current and future threats. The United States and Iceland have maintained a defense relationship for more than 55 years with U.S. forces stationed on the island.
