This lovely little horse served her Country well during the Korean war - She'll steal your heart. This is one
to regift to others so she gets the recognition she deserves.

Just another war hero and a Marine to boot.

Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried recoil-less rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars.

But this horse did something more during the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 50 trips up and down the hill, on the way up she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers.

What was so amazing? Well she made every one of those trips through enemy fire and without anyone leading her.

Here's her story and photos to prove where she was and what she did.'
