In 1970 I enlisted into the US Army. I went to Germany and several of the soldiers I was stationed with were Turtles. On several occasions, when we had downtime, we would talk about the Turtles. They encouraged me to apply for membership. But, I was always so busy, I never did. I’m now fully retired and decided,once again, to pursue membership. I must include the fact that, while these soldiers drank a lot of alcohol, they were moral and high minded. I’ve tried to emulate those fellows. They were such good role models.
