Comments: I've just finished the complete biography of Staff Sergeant Reckless! It's called Sgt Reckless: America's War Horse. You can learn all about it at www.SgtReckless.com or visit Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Sgt-Reckless-Americas-War-Horse/dp/1621572633/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1394247026&sr=8-5&keywords=sgt+reckless

Happy reading! It's filled with over 130 pictures, mostly from the Marines that served with Reckless and shared their pictures with me. Also, information on her colts.

Comments: Just published, They Called Her Reckless -- A True Story of War,
Love And One Extraordinary Horse, is 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, saved
lives, raised spirits, and was loved and respected by all who
knew her. The help of dozens of Marines made this book possible.
Thank you all. Includes 14 pages of photos, many never before
published. Available at various Marine Corps sites and on
Amazon.com.

Comments: Served with ATco/H and Sco/4th Marines at Nara,Japan. Was assigned
TAD to H and Sco/5th Marines, near Imjin River, Korea. 7/Nov/54
to 12Dec/54. Delivered new crypto machines. Weather was very
cold and we lived in tents. Very glad to return to Japan for
Christmas '54. Didn't see much of Korea. Anyone that
served in Korea after the peace treaty (6/1953) still
deserves the medal.

life but he won't talk much about his time in Korea.
There's a lot he doesn't remember. All I know is he was
in the anti-tank company, 5th regiment, 1st Marine
Division and he said it was cold as shit. That's pretty
much all I can get out of him. Anyone remember him or
can help me out? I'd appreciate it.

Does anyone remember my real good buddy Jack. He was 25th Draft also. We joined the Marines together. What made it so hard was that he was an only child. I'd like to hear from one of you guys from the 5th.

I was in the tank platoon. I'm so old now that I can hardly remember
names, places, dates, but I damn well remember events, and I wouldn't
mind reminiscing about some of them with you. Names I do remember:
Frank Astorino, whose hair caught on fire from muzzle blast; Phil
Caudillo; (Joe?) Hebert, the bow gunner who drove us off the hill when Sal
Tenorio got hit; Tom Fales, who was driving (I think) the first time we ever
got hit; Norman Bodway, who LaBarge always called "Charlie Hash";
Double Easy Fox; the Navy chief (a medic whose name I don't remember)
who ran up the hill with me with our own guys shooting at us when we
were in reserve. My email is baptie3@astound.net. If you remember me,
send me a note.. Hell, send me a note even if you don't.

Comments: I went TAD to AT-5 for a short time in 1954. It was Cpl. Reckless then. We'd go out for the day and return to a wrecked tent. She could smell any goodies and would find them - guarenteed! She had the run of the place as she had earned. A Lt. Louie (Chinese descent), myself and others were in a circle talking. Reckless came up behind one fellow and nuzzled the back of his neck. It scared the guy and he cussed Reckless calling her a blanking nag. The Lt. sternly let him know Reckless was a hero and had done more for the Marine Corps than he ever would. And since Reckless out ranked him any further verbal abuse would be cause for diciplinary action. I had the honor of being in formation when Cpl. Reckless was promoted to Sgt. The most beautiful horse blanket I ever saw. Semper Fi
