Sgt. Reckless Memorial Dedication


For Robin Hutton, Friday, July 26 saw the fulfillment of a dream: The US Marine Corps dedicated a memorial to Sgt. Reckless, the Mongolian mare who 'served' in the Korean War alongside her Marine "brothers." Hutton's tireless dedication to the creation of a monument to memorialize one of America's bravest war horses was realized in a beautiful ceremony attended by 3,000 Marines and well-wishers on the grounds of the Museum of the US Marine Corps. A realistic, life-sized bronze statue of Reckless was unveiled followed by a reception at the museum. Here's one Marine's true story of Reckless:

I'm so glad that I got my Sgt. Reckless. More animals need to recognized by our Men & Women is arms. Just look at all of the Dogs that have kept men/women over in the Middle East company during their hard time!! Breyer should take one special animal from the War on Terror and make a model like they did of Sgt. Reckless.

The discription make me courious to look up the different areas that she worked in and learn about the history. Breyer - what a wonderful way to create the couriousity for youngester to explaor their history!
