US military: less than 500 members expected to remain by July

The removal of US military forces in Keflavík is currently in full force with less than 500 troop members expected to remain by mid-July. Some 2,500 people were living on the base in mid-March when it was announced that the troops would be moved out.
Fréttabladid sources this report today from the military’s online news journal Stars & Stripes. After mid-July, the only military members left on the base will be those considered indispensable for minimal operations, more specifically security staff and those engaged in the operations of the Keflavík airport.
