    Thank you so much for sharing this inspirational story with us, Deacon Greg! Sgt. Reckless truly embodied heroism and the Marine Corps motto, “Semper Fi.” Her story needs to be told and re-told, and her memory should live on forever. It is impossible to watch this video without tearing up. And anyone who views this video will join your sister in becoming a horse lover! St. Francis of Assisi is smiling on you for sharing this with us!

  2. OMG, that brought tears to my eyes. I have never heard of her either. I’m going to have to post that on my own blog. What a great soldier!

  3. “Do you give the horse his might?
    Do you clothe his neck with strength?
    Do you make him leap like the locust?
    His majestic snorting is terrible.
    He paws in the valley, and exults in his strength…
    He laughs at fear, and is not dismayed …
    With fierceness and rage he swallows the ground;
    he cannot stand still at the sound of the trumpet.” (Job 39:19-24)

  4. What a wonderful and inspiring story! Thank you for making us aware of Sgt. Reckless, a real hero!
