A lively tale of the only non-human to officially hold military rank and be awarded two purple hearts for her heroic work in the Korean War. The fact that the brave little horse was totally motivated by her treats of chocolate, eggs, spaghetti and coffee adds levity to the serious demands humans put upon animals especially in times of war.  Important fact - she does survive to be honored and feted.
