Whether this story is true, I donâ€™t know. But I heard a speaker at a conference tell it once, and while I thought it was a bit extreme, I kind of liked the message.
The story goes that a military recruiter in a metro area up north â€” a place with a fair amount of ethnic and socio-economic diversity â€” worked one of the more economically depressed areas of the city trying to enlist young men and women to the armed services. He didnâ€™t take the stereotypical approach to recruiting, however, because in his mind, he wanted to guarantee he recruited the right soldiers, not the most soldiers.
