Editor's Pick Guest author Janet Barrett

Saturday  2:00 pm to 3:30 pm

On her new book, They Called Her Reckless. Chester resident Janet Barrett will discuss her new book about a horse that served during the Korean War in the Marines’ Fifth Regiment. The horse supplied large ammunition shells in difficult terrain to the troops by carrying them on her back, eventually not even requiring a human to guide her! So beloved was she that the men often fed her from their rations and in the end Reckless was promoted to Staff Sergeant. A question and answer period will follow the formal presentation. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
