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…. Click here.
Here’s a link to a website dedicated solely to this horse and her memory. Check it out here.
What an amazing story. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for horses. I think they are the most noble of God’s creatures.
This story is amazing! Creatures come in many shapes and sizes. This one just happened to have 4 hooves.
