A highlight of the project, Harold located a packsaddle similar to what Reckless used. He then carefully created some mock canisters and then lashed them on as he remembers her being tied in Korea during her hard service. This saddle was absolutely invaluable during the sculpting, as few photos showed the extensive detail needed for the project. Of course the next obstacle was how to fabricate a horse to cinch it to...a thrift store blanket over a bag of packing peanuts! -Sgt Reckless- The Making of the Monument - SSGT RECKLESS-The making of her monument(There are over 100 photos on this page through her unveiling)
