Sergeant Reckless, the Korean War Horse
Reckless with her main caretaker, US Marine Sergeant Joseph Latham, came from the United States Marine Corps. The photograph is in the public domain.

An American Marine gun crew during the Korean War bought a Mongolian bred mare with their own money and trained her to carry shells for the recoilless rifle they called ‘Reckless’.
They also named the mare ‘Reckless’, and she became their mascot and an indispensable member of their gun crew. Reckless often, under heavy fire, made countless trips delivering ammunition from the supply point to the gun. She would often do this alone.

I have also read that Reckless completed 51 solo trips in a single day during the Battle for Outpost Vegas in 1953. The battle raged for 5 days and it is estimated that there were over 1,000 American casualties and twice that number of Chinese during the battle. It is regarded as one of the bloodiest battles in Marine Corps history.

Reckless was also used to evacuate the wounded and was injured twice.

In recognition of her incredible war service, she was presented with a special citation for bravery by the Marines and promoted to Sergeant.

The Marines personally payed for her travel to the United States, where she enjoyed a well-earned retirement pastured at Camp Pendleton.

Reckless was once named as one of the 100 all time American heroes by Life Magazine.

Reckless died in 1968.

John "Lucky" Luckadoo is the last living original pilot of the WWII Eighth Air Force 100th Bomb Group known as the “Bloody Hundredth".
Dallas resident and WWII veteran John “Lucky” Luckadoo turns 100 years old March 16, 2022 and gets a day named in his honor.

DALLAS — Texas is getting another centenarian and the City of Dallas is honoring his 100th birthday by naming March 16 as John “Lucky” Luckadoo Day.

Luckadoo is the last living original pilot of the WWII Eighth Air Force 100th Bomb Group known as the “Bloody Hundredth,” which suffered high casualties.

“One in four crew members survived the war,” said Luckadoo.

It was a period in his life he kept to himself for over five decades after his service.

Having flown 25 missions as a B-17 bomber pilot, he said the traumatic experience is a chapter in his life where he “experienced terrible things, saw terrible things happen — was grateful to have survived it.”
