Staff Sgt. Brian McCumber, motor sergeant (left), and Pfc. Brandon Gonzalez, Stryker mechanic (right), 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment, Combat Repair Team, replace a ball joint on a Stryker at Yakima Training Center, Wash., Sept. 19. Japanese Ground Self-Defense Forces and U.S. Soldiers have been using their equipment to their capacity in the rough terrain of YTC during Operation Rising Thunder. Like all machines, this equipment requires maintenance and both teams have a unit standing by to work all hours of the day and night to ensure the vehicles are ready for use the next day.
