Turtle Club Us



United States

Origin Story:

While at a meeting of another ancient fraternal organization, I was helping a member sort out an issue with his membership card for that organization. And while he was rooting through his wallet, he pulled out a green card and asked me "Are you a Turtle?" So of course, I said "What?". After several minutes of stories and the prescribed questions, I found myself to be a Turtle. The member that had made me a Turtle happened to be an elder member of that organization and a former Vietnam-era Navy fighter pilot. The exchange was rather short but struck me. I was honored that this member chose to share a little bit of his life story with me. And, I am honored to be made a Turtle by him.
