Stryker training in Fairbanks simulates Iraq — without the heat

The climate and culture of Fairbanks are about as far away as you can get from the war zone of Iraq. But soldiers stationed here must train for deployments, so the Army has spent millions of dollars building an area at Fort Wainwright that simulates the war zone. The urban training complex is open to both Alaskan soldiers and foreign forces.
