They Called Her Reckless is a true story about war, love and one extraordinary horse.  Join us and author Janet Barrett to celebrate the story of an unusual war veteran on November 7 at 11 am.  When the Fifth Regiment’s Recoilless Rifle Platoon acquired a small Korean pony to haul ammunition to the front lines, what they got was a real-life warhorse, the courageous and indomitable Reckless, who stood with her Marines for two years during the Korean War, saving many lives, raising spirits, and winning the love and respect of all who knew her.  Please register at the front desk.
