Ah, Riverrat, the smoothest-talking redneck in the Kansas National Guard, got called up to active duty. Riverrat's first assignment was in a military induction center. Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled. The officer in charge soon noticed that Riverrat was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance. This was remarkable, because it cost these low-income recruits $30.00 per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the government was already providing at no charge. The officer decided he'd sit in the back of the room at the next briefing and observe Riverrat's sales pitch. Riverrat stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, "If you has da normal GI insurans an' you goes to Afghanistan an' gets youself killed, da governmen' pays you beneficiary $20,000. If you takes out da supplemental insurans, which cost you only t'irty dollarsa mons, den da governmen' gots ta pay you beneficiary $200,000!" "Now," Riverrat concluded, "which bunch you tink dey gonna send ta Afghanistan first?"
