Reckless

Korean warhorse Reckless is to be memorialized at Camp Pendleton with a larger than life statue, a duplicate of the monument recently dedicated at the National Museum of the Marine Corps, Quantico, VA.

The Camp Pendleton Historical Society is dedicated to preserving and broadcasting the rich and colorful history of the land that is now Camp Pendleton. Our interests span the entire history of the region, to include prehistoric times, native American culture, the Spanish mission era, the rancho story, and finally, Marine Corps ownership since 1942. We are especially proud of the work we have done to support various historical restoration projects and other historical programs aboard the Base, having raised and contributed some $50,000 for these efforts since 2005.
