Jim Lux flanked by Oli and Doddi Marteinsson. The plaque was Doddi's idea. He and Oli located the site and, with the help of Ambassador
Areaga, the mayor and city council of Grindavik the land was donated for the plaque and a future memorial monument. Doddi had the plaque
stand built. Jim designed the plaque and he and Doddi completed the installation at 10:00 PM the night before the dedication.
