Beaudreaux's first military assignment was to a military induction center, and, because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about the government benefits; especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled. Before long the Captain in charge of the induction center began to notice that Beaudreaux was getting a 99% sign up for the top GI insurance. This was odd, because it would cost these poor inductees $30 more per month for the higher coverage than what the government was already granting. The Captain decided that he would not ask Beaudreaux about his selling techniques but that he would sit in the back of the room and observe Beaudreaux's sales pitch. Beaudreaux stood up before his next group of inductees and stated," If ya have da normal GI insurance and go to Iraq and get killed, da government pays your beneficiary $6,000. If ya take out da supplemental GI insurance which will cost you only $30 more a month, the government has to pay your beneficiary $200,000. "NOW," Beaudreaux concluded, "Which bunch do ya think dey gonna send to Iraq first?"
