    Default Anybody ever hear of Sgt. Reckless?

    Or am I the only one who's been under a rock? A friend of mine who knows I love horses sent me a link to this site and a video about a mare who was used during the Korean War to carry ammo to Marines.

    Unbelievable story! What an amazing, personable, heroic mare!

    Looks like there's a book and a movie in the works, as well as an older book that looks like it may have been published by the USMC.

    Some links to more info if anyone's interested:

    I think I first read about her in a heroic pets book.
