Bthun sends the story of a war hero who is right up our alley.



There's a website for her, now.

A lovely creature.

Is it my imagination, or was that opening battle footage a clip from a movie about Rodger Young I saw when I was a kid?

It's great to see that War Horse is bringing new attention to SSGT Reckless. Here's Wednesday's article from the local paper on Camp Pendleton's famous SSGT Reckless.

At the very bottom there's a link to a Marine home movie from 1957 of Reckless and her newborn foal, Fearless. Fearless is taking some of her first steps at 4:30.

My Dad took me to MCRD football games back then. I remember Reckless was on the sidelines at some of them. What a horse.
