This site is dedicated to a remarkable hero - a small Mongolian mare named Reckless - who became a National hero in 1954 when an article ran in the Saturday Evening Post about her heroics during several battles in the Korean War.  LIFE Magazine ran a Special Collector’s Edition in 1997 entitled “Celebrating our Heroes,” and there’s Reckless  listed alongside the likes of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and Mother Teresa ... just to name a few!

         Her incredible story is inside - you are in for real treat!

She wasn’t a horse --

             She was a Marine!!

I have written a movie script on this incredible story and am looking for a home for it.
