Service or Relationship: INTERESTED PERSON

Comments: A new book, THEY CALLED HER RECKLESS -- A TRUE STORY OF WAR, LOVE
AND ONE EXTRAORDINARY HORSE, by Janet Barrett, tells the full
story of the little Korean pony who became the warhorse of the
5th Regiment during the Korean War. Awarded two Purple Hearts,
promoted to sergeant (and later staff sergeant), Reckless hauled
ammo to the front lines, helped saved lives, raised spirits, and
was loved and respected by all who knew her. More than 60 Marines
who knew her in Korea and later at Camp Pendleton gave generously
of time and memories to make this book possible. Included are 14
pages of photographs, many never before published. Book is
available through various Marine Corps sites and on Amazon.com.


Keywords: Reckless, warhorse, Recoilless Rifle Platoon, Anti-Tank Company,
