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".

Similar to a dutch oven in the sense that you cut a disgusting fart and cover your girl's head under the blanket. She then sticks out her arms and legs kicking but her head is under the blanket and she looks like a turtle.
My girl loves the idea of me giving her a nasty turtle

may come in the form of a complusive lier, usually resides in the tri state area, also enjoys spending its time riding small hard objects that are from its own family blood lines, plans are not its strong point and will dodge any form of communication followed up by a poor excuse, that usually equates to "tonite the turtle was captivated by his father in the bed room and willing and openly proformed sexual acts while getting the utmost enjoyment from it"
