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.
“If you smell what America’s Tank Division is cooking!”
Shoutout to the #IronSoldiers assigned to the @Blackhawk_SQDN for naming one of their tanks in homage to the @TheRock.
Hopefully the “People’s Champ” will see it and give you guys a shoutout and a retweet!#TuesdayThoughts pic.twitter.com/xMm2aKBArS— 1st Armored Division (@1stArmoredDiv) March 12, 2019
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.
I’m sending a salute of respect & gratitude to the Blackhawk Squadron 🇺🇸 1st Armored Division for the honor of naming their tank (the most advanced in the world) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Heavy duty, bad ass, sexy AF and built to take care of business 😉 — but most importantly, thank you all for your service. Grateful to the bone. #IronSoldiers #BlackhawkSquadron #1stArmouredDivision #FortBliss #TheDRJ #BloodSweatRespect
