The story of Staff Sergeant Reckless, decorated war horse
Staff Sergeant Reckless was a decorated war horse who held official rank in the United States military. She served in numerous combat actions during the Korean War, carrying supplies and ammunition, and was also used to evacuate wounded. Learning each supply route after only a couple of trips, she often traveled to deliver supplies to the troops on her own, without benefit of a handler. The highlight of her nine-month military career came in late March 1953 during the Battle for Outpost Vegas. Join us to learn the rest of the story of this four-legged hero.

The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge: Desmond Doss
Desmond Doss made a name for himself – by saving lives. He refused to bear arms or carry a weapon – in the midst of constant enemy fire. He was unwilling to take a life or even so much as touch a weapon. He did however say that he would be proud to serve his country as a medic if they would let him. He was the conscientious objector who chose to fight – fight in a way that would help people. He had the wild idea that he could serve his country at war and also obey the command: “Thou shalt not kill.” This remembrance day, to learn more, watch our program “The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge: Desmond Doss.”
