She was big and strong; brown was the color of her hair.
She, too, was in this nightmare.
She was all business; there was no horseplay.
Sgt. Reckless almost died today
carrying 386 rounds of ammo on her back.
Sgt. Reckless never stopped, never slacked,
Marine Corps war horse that she was
above and beyond, because there is no telling
how many Marines she saved.
Sgt. Reckless almost died today,
but dying was not an option for her.
On countless trips through enemy fire,
wounds she, too, incurred.
Here’s to Sgt. Reckless! She was a Marine,
she was a hero, best war horse ever seen.
OORAH, Sgt. Reckless!
Selfless service you did demonstrate.
Sgt. Reckless didn’t die that day.
There were too many lives for her to save.
