Letter to the editor: Staff Sergeant Reckless

This is just a note to say how much I enjoyed your recent article, “Staff Sergeant Reckless.”

I recently ordered the book by Robin Hutton and have already finished another book regarding this heroic mare. I am about half-way through Ms. Hutton’s book and find it both amazing and delightful concerning the tasks this little horse performed and how she lived to return home to spend her years of retirement in the United States under the care of the Marines whom she served.

I made a copy of your article and sent it on to Robin Hutton.

Thanks again for the nice article and bringing a real American hero to the attention of many new readers.
