AuthorTalk with Janet Barret-author of They Called Her Reckless

      November 2, 2015:  Author Janet Barret will visit the APL on Monday, November 2, 2015 at 7:00 to read from and discuss her novel They Called Her Reckless.  When the U.S. Marine Fifth Regiment’s Recoilless Rifle Platoon acquired a small Korean pony to haul ammunition up the steep hills to the front lines, what they got was a real-life hero, Reckless, a warhorse who stood with her buddies for two years during the Korean War, saving many lives, raising spirits and winning the love and respect of all who knew her.  For the first time, read her whole story, made possible by the contributions of over 60 Marines who shared their memories.
