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".

Turtles are reptiles of the order Testudines, most of whose body is shielded by a special bony or cartilaginous shell developed from their ribs. "Turtle" may either refer to the Testudines as a whole, or to particular Testudines which make up a form taxon that is not monophyletic.

Turtle: It's like being a walking house that eats lettuce.

Practical joke: To empty the contents of a backpack, flip it inside-out, then finish off by putting the contents back and zipping it up. Done when owner of backpack is unaware until later.
When he wasn't looking, I turtled his backpack.

A person or usually a large group of people who walk really slowly right in front of you. Turtles make it impossible to get around them or to get where you need to be in time.
