The 5th Marine Regiment’s Recoilless Rifle Platoon bought this horse the horse to act as a beast of burden during the Korean War, renaming her Reckless after the support weapon she would serve.
Her most notable day of fighting occurred during the Battle for Outpost Vegas in March 1953. In one day of the battle Reckless made 51 solo trips to the troops carrying a total of 386 recoilless rifle rounds (equal to over 9,000 pounds) to her unit. Additionally, she escorted or carried several wounded marines to the nearby aid station. During the fighting she was wounded twice and was promoted to Corporal.
Later in the Korean War Reckless became the first horse in the Marine Corps to participate in an amphibious landing. After the Korean Conflict she was formally promoted to Sergeant and spent her remaining days at Camp Pendleton, California. A plaque dedicated to her with her photo can be viewed at the stables there. A statute was erected in her honour at the National Museum of the Marine Corps at Quantico, Virginia.
In addition to representing the named character (rules can be found on page 211 Bolt Action Korea), the figure is also ideal to represent any pack mule or beast of burden in any Bolt Action army.
