Wars produce heroes and unusual events, many of them reported and others that fall into the untold category. USA Today reported on one of the unusual stories of the Korean War. It is a timely story since the 60th anniversary of the cease-fire in the Korean War (1950-53) will be observed this Saturday, July 27. The cease-fire came on July 27, 1953.

The story by Kimberly Railey is about Staff Sgt. Reckless, a Korean horse that “joined” the Marine Corps. The Marines acquired the horse in 1952 from a young Korean boy, Kim Huk Moon, who needed money to pay for an artificial leg for his older sister. The horse quickly was “trained” to carry ammunition to frontline Marines.
