At the 44th Annual National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon and Ceremony the The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame will introduce the Inaugural Sergeant Reckless Award.
“Named for the most decorated war horse in modern history, this award recognizes animals, individuals, or groups who risk their lives for the betterment of others and who stand courageously in protection of others.”
“Sergeant Reckless, a mare, held official rank in the United States military and served in many combat positions during the Korean War, including one in which she completed 51 solo trips, covering 35 miles in a single day, transporting over 9,000 pounds of recoilless rounds – and saving lives in the process.”
“The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors and celebrates women, past and present, whose lives exemplify the courage, resilience, and independence that helped shape the American West, and fosters an appreciation of the ideals and spirit of self-reliance they inspire.”
“The Only Museum Dedicated to Honoring the Women of The West”
