    A Marine Corps Hero worth remembering :

    Reckless was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried recoilless rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars.

    But this horse did something more…during the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 51 trips up and down the hill, on the way up she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers…without anyone leading her.

    A short but interesting video clip of this Marine's " above and beyond " heroic deeds :
