    Wow that's an amazing story. I would figure that would be one of the last uses of horses in military service. Seeing Korea as mountainous, jeeps wouldn't do well.

    Last use of horses, huh? Did you miss the statue that was dedicated in NYC to these folks?

    I'm always amazed by the animals we live with. Horses have been used throughout the ages for battles of all kinds. They are instinctively brave character is truly unbeleivable. The way this horse served in battle is worth all the honor it deserves. Thanks for posting!

    This might be a good time to remind everyone of the Steven Spielburg movie entitled, "War Horse" from a couple of years ago. I went to see it & thoroughly enjoyed it......wish it were out on home video, as I'd buy a DVD. Great testament to how horses have served us thru the centuries. And don't forget "Secretariat". THAT is a thrill to watch as well!. jd45

    This Marine appreciates it, and I'm sure your buddy will too.

    Thanks for posting the link. I sent it to my sister, whose a big horse person. Horses to her are basically what firearms are to me.
