When the  Fifth Regiment's Recoilless Rifle Platoon acquired a small Korean pony to haul ammunition to the front lines, what they got was a real-life warhorse, the courageous and indomitable Reckless, who stood with her Marines for two years during the Korean War, saving many lives, raising spirits, and winning the love and respect of all who knew her.


Now read her full story, enhanced by 14 pages of photographs. Awesome, heart-warming, and downright funny -- just the way she was -- as remembered by those who knew Reckless, and love her still today.
