Pak Sutiyoso is a graduate from the ’68 Academy. As a junior, I had seen Pak Sutiyoso from a distance in Kopassus. He was in Group 2 in Magelang, while I was in Group 1 in Cijantung and in Batujajar. Although we didn’t often interact in service, I knew that he was involved in various operations, including infiltration operations in East Timor under Pak Dading Kalbuadi.

Pak Sutiyoso is known for his humor and his involvement in numerous field operations. He is also famous for his hobby of shooting moving targets.

When he was a Colonel serving as the Operations Assistant of Kopassus, he called me. At that time, I was still the Commander of Brigade 17 Airborne. He proposed that I become the Commander of Pusdikpassus in Batujajar to which I agreed. I wanted to improve the curriculum and the quality of training and trainers in Batujajar to enhance the elite forces of Indonesia.

During my time as the Commander of Pusdikpassus, he supported me greatly. We both served under the leadership of the Pangkostrad, when he was the Operations Assistant in Kostrad and I was the Commander of Brigade. Pak Sutiyoso is a patriotic person and has a great sense of humor. He is one of the seniors and mentors who have nurtured me during my time in the military.
