Sgt. Reckless climbs toward Camp Pendleton with fund-raiser

From Horsetrader sales staff - August 21st, 2014 - Ingate Column

The heartfelt campaign to bring a memorial for Korean War hero Sgt. Reckless comes to Camp Pendleton on Sept. 13, as the Camp Pendleton Historical Society will host a fund-raiser to assist building a memorial for the mare. Spearheaded by author Robin Hutton of Los Angeles, the proposed monument would duplicate the stunning statue by sculptor Jocelyn Russell dedicated last July at the National Museum for the Marine Corps in Quantico. Sgt. Reckless, who once carried 386 rounds– about five tons– 35 miles through rice paddies and up steep hills while enemy fire roared around her, was retired and buried at Camp Pendleton. The fund-raiser will be held at the historic Las Flores Adobe on the base, and it will include architectural tours, a book signing by Hutton with her book, “Sgt. Reckless, America’s Warhorse,” plus other activities including a war dog demonstration, Indian basket weaving, food, music, silent auction and more. Camp Pendleton CPHS will match any funds raised, dollar-for-dollar, up to $30,000! See the ad on page 87, and learn more about this amazing project, at CampPendletonHistoricalSociety.org.
