This term came about through a very popular cartoon of a helmet topping off a pair of boots to signify the veteran with just a short time left in his enlistment and keeping a REALLY low profile, turtle-like, trying to make it out alive. Among VietNam and older veterans a challenge term by which infantrymen recognized each other.

When a veteran infantryman would meet another veteran, the question would be asked: "Are you a turtle?". To which the challenged veteran would have to either reply "You bet your sweet ass I am!" or have to buy the challenging veteran a drink.
Army veteran: "Are you a turtle?"

Marine veteran: "You bet your sweet ass I am".

The most beautiful, smart, caring, amazing, talented, sexy, intelligent, funny, interesting, woman in the whole wide world. She's the girl every dude describes when imagining their dream girl and the girl every man describes when imagining their wildest fantasy. She is a best friend, the hommie, and always there when you need her. She is the life of the party and has a smile that turns the worst day around.
If turtle ever gave me a chance to be a part of her world it would make all of my dreams come true. She is all that and a lifetime supply of chips.
