- Sgt. Reckless became a war hero to Marines fighting in Korea 60 years ago. The small Mongolian horse hauled supplies and ammunition on the front lines through constant gunfire for soldiers who last week remembered the bravery of their four-legged hero. The mare became a national hero after a published article in the Saturday Evening Post described her service. Under heavy fire in 1953, she ran 51 supply trips in a single day. The mare was promoted to Staff Sergeant and is now immortalized in a bronze statue unveiled on the grounds of the Marine Base in Triangle, Virginia July 26. According to the Sgt. Reckless website, “Her Military Decorations include two Purple Hearts, Good Conduct Medal, Presidential Unit Citation with star, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Navy Unit Commendation, and Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation, all of which she wore proudly on her red & gold blanket, along with a French Fourragere that the 5th Marines earned in WW1.”
Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength. Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them. Selah. Behold, God is mine helper: the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in thy truth. I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good. For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
