I just completed the initiation offered on the website but the truth is that I have been a turtle for close to 35 years. My grandfather was a Captain in the Navy and fought in WWII and the Korean War. He initiated me when I was a teenager. Of course I wasn’t drinking at that point but it felt great to be a part of something silly that I could share in with the adults. I remember all I wanted was for people to ask me if I was a turtle so I could offer my reply. Thanks for keeping this Order and it’s traditions alive. I look forward to initiating friends and family.
