Sgt Reckless USMC - Korean War Horse Hero

Post by valerie »

She was a very cool horse. I first heard about her a few

years back when I stopped by a little military surplus

here in town and came across the most delightful old

guy. We chatted a bit and he brought out some old

magazines and let me BORROW them. One of them had

a very good article about her.

I was touched he trusted me with his magazines, and

returned them promptly!!

It made me sad that her story has faded away... I had never heard it. She's worthy of a *good* movie.

You know when I first heard the movie title "War Horse" I thought it might be about her... sadly,

it wasn't.

Hi Rusty, I would very much like to see/hear that. I think you

have to wait until you have a few more posts under your belt, though...

So give it a bit, okay? And post about other things here!

Semper Fi!

By all means post a url, the site has no issues with real people, we just have filters to avoid spam. If you need to spell .com as "dot com" to bypass the filter, I'll edit it back to being a usable link.

Good Morning… and thank you for allowing us to introduce you to our little project. First though a little history from our perspective... Sharon Anderson is the vocalist on song, she currently resides in Nashville and I'm in Mexico. We grew up together in a small town in Canada and got back in touch with each other on a professional basis in Dec. of last year. We have written 2 songs together " Wild Caballo" and Sgt. Reckless. Sgt. Reckless as you know, was such an amazing horse, I've worked in the horse and the cattle business enough to know what she did, is practically unheard of. To go against all her natural instincts and to see it through the way she did…was really something very special... and to have received 2 minor wounds through the whole war, it was almost as if unseen forces were at work. They did call her "The angel on the hill"

Here's the Sergeant Reckless song and imagery.

Thanks for your trust and support of Sgt. Reckless.

Thanks so much for your compliment, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

We're in the process of finding an artist who'll want to record it. Ian Tyson has made some phone calls to Sharon about it and I spoke to the bandmaster at Camp Pendleton and they have expressed some interest in it as well. So we'll see!

It would be awesome to hear it with a full military band!!

Please pass it on to you friends and family!

Thanks again, Rustyc

You're welcome and thanks for your reply...the little Sgt. has a way of touching everyone's heart not only with what she did, but with her personality as well!

Okay so now I'm all choked up!

Thank you, Rustyc and thank Sharon, too.

When I was producing the video I had to walk away a few times...imagine... a tough old cowboy like me gettin' choked up over a horse and song. Good thing there is no-one around here from the ranch..lol!
