Soldiers from the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team ride in their Stryker vehicle at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska, Sept. 19, during a joint training mission. Units like this brigade, not currently in combat areas, are in a high state of readiness to respond to contingencies that may arise. Incidentally, the brigade saw combat in Iraq last year as the 172nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team (it was renamed in December).
