Staff Sergeant Reckless was a decorated war horse who held official rank in the United States military. She served in numerous combat actions during the Korean War, carrying supplies and ammunition, and was also used to evacuate wounded. Learning each supply route after only a couple of trips, she often traveled to deliver supplies to the troops on her own, without benefit of a handler. The highlight of her nine-month military career came in late March 1953 during the Battle for Outpost Vegas. Join us to learn the rest of the story of this four-legged hero.
