None are so old, Thoreau once wrote, as those who have outlived their enthusiasms. By that standard, Sgt. Maj. Raymond Moran, the most chronologically advanced recruiter in the Army Reserve, might well also be its most youthful. "This isn't work; it's a labor of love," says Moran, a beloved figure at Fort Meade who is embarking on his 60th year of doing what he loves most: finding prospects for the Army, then putting his cheerful personality to work guiding their careers. Moran, who turned 80 last November, never guessed it would last this long.

Then he bought stock in "Overnight Transportation" and cashed in to the extent of $2,800 two years later -- which he invested in a hamburger business called Spartan Foods.
