At SMF training, we were told that Recruiter is for the boys who get
others to join (and they emphasized "boys"). It seems the patch is a
bit aloof -- I had to call my Council to find out where to place it (2
inches below the right pocket) and everyone, both Scouts and Scouters,
asked about it when we awarded our first one. I like it and think it's
a good tool to motivate the boys to proselytize Scouting.
