With the removal of the iconic Toomer's Oaks underway, soldiers in Kuwait who couldn't be part of the weekend rolling after A-Day held their own rolling. 

Auburn fans in the Alabama Army National Guard's 135th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, out of Birmingham, rolled a T-55 tank which sits at a major intersection on Camp Arifjan.

The rolling was the idea of Lt. Col. Steven Shepherd and Maj. Erick Murphy, AU class of 1999. After word got out, 25 soldiers showed up with toilet paper in hand.

After rolling the tank and snapping a few pictures the soldiers cleaned up the toilet paper and went back to work.
