The right-rear wheel fell off the Stryker behind us as we traveled Wednesday with 3rd Platoon, Alpha Company of the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment. We dismounted about 3:30 p.m. in a quiet neighborhood east of the Tigris River and were rolling again in 10 minutes.
A mild pyrotechnic show of smoke and sparks trailed the Stryker as it limped back to base on seven good wheels and one broken hub. Soldiers predicted it would be back in service that evening.
