Sergeant Reckless Horse
Breyer Traditional Sergeant Reckless Horse, Breyer model number 1493
During a time where female roles in the American military were limited, one rose in ranks and became a national hero. Named 'Reckless' by the Marines fighting in the Korean War, a little Mongolian mare began her military career as a simple pack horse, and ended with the rank of Sergeant.
Reckless held a very important job during the war- carrying heavy ammunition to the Marines at the front lines. At the Battle of Outpost Vegas in March 1953, Reckless carried almost five tons of ammunition over the course of a few days through 'no man's land' to the frontlines, and also carried wounded soldiers to safety!
