Can you smell what Fort Bliss is cooking?!

The military base is getting national recognition for naming a piece of equipment after a popular Hollywood star.

Local soldiers assigned to the 1st Squadron 1st Cavalry Regiment named a tank in honor of pro wrestler and actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. 

Fort Bliss got a special shoutout by the man himself. The actor posted the photo to his Instagram saying he’s “sending a salute of respect & gratitude” to the soldiers and is “grateful to the bone” for their service.
