Does the USN have a Navy Exchange or anything similar at Keflavik?
Aplogies if this is the wrong place to post this.

I did not see one when I was there this May. It's a pretty small contingent of USN there, I would be surprised if they had one.

According to Wikipedia, and anecdotal information I have, the US military is all but gone, and there are no US facilities there any more. The military camp is being redeveloped with a new name, and it is just Iceland's busiest airport. Any military presence is incidental, and not permanent.

Thanks for the replies. I will be moving there in January to work for one of the local airlines and I will be living on the former USN base. I had seen a few reports that the USN were building the base back up again

There are some things going on, no idea if there will be support facilities.
