What's cool about this lil fella is that it is one of the only vehicles in Army history named after a soldier, not a famous general. The Stryker is named in honor of Spc. Robert F. Stryker, who received the Medal of Honor for his actions during the Vietnam War, and Pfc. Stuart S. Stryker, who received the award for his actions during World War II. Both men were killed in action.
