What a Horse! Sgt. Reckless US Marine
Sgt. Reckless was a packhorse serving the US Marines in the Korean War. During the Battle for Outpost Vegas, Reckless made 51 trips up and down the hill carrying ammunition and wounded soldiers. Alone. No one guiding her. Wounded, she received two Purple Hearts along with other commendations.
After the war she was retired to Camp Pendleton, the Marine base just north of Oceanside, California. She lived there until her death in 1968.
There was a recent ground-breaking for a memorial to Reckless there at Pendleton. Semper Fi.
