Memorial Day - Sergeant Reckless

This was posted on Facebook by Integrity Horse Feed..

Sergeant Reckless was a member of the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. For 9 months, she was a member of the Recoilless Rifle Platoon, Anti-Tank Company, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division. She carried supplies and ammunition, and aided in evacuating the wounded. She was such an intelligent mare that she learned how to navigate supply routes on her own, and is famed for making 51 solo trips, covering over 35 miles, to resupply the front lines in a single day! After the war she was awarded two Purple Hearts, a Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, and was promoted to staff sergeant in 1959 by the Commandant of the Marine Corps.
