I was a student nurse in a dorm. The approximate date was May 10, 1970. The nurse who inducted me was a fellow student named Mary Patt. After I became a Turtle, I inducted my father (a former Marine), my mother, my brother and my sister. From that day on I have received turtle gifts on birthdays and Christmas until my house could not handle any more. These were great memories because the only one left here with me is my sister. I never officially joined the Ancient & Honorable Order because I did not know about it and I didn’t have a computer. I did carry a card to show my membership and recruit more members. Now 49 years later I am officially here.
