    In 2013 I took a trip to Labuan Bajo (the gateway to Komodo) in Indonesia. My hotel room faced the dock and I could see a very large Indonesian naval vessel as well as some smaller ones. The dock also seemed to be crowded with military personnel. Being curious, I walked to the dock to see what was going on. Apparently, there were a lot of KOPASKA and other naval personnel that were securing the area for a coming visit of the Indonesian President. The KOPASKA guys were very friendly and I was able to hang out with both officers and enlisted and take some pics...

    On the right are a couple of the KOPASKA guys wearing the digital multicam combat shirts. The guys on the left are KOPASKA as well, just not in uniform. Yes, those are their weapons in front.

    Navy Tiger Stripe? I have seen this fabric being sold in a military store in Bali. Wanted to get some but didn't have the time to go back.

    One of the KOPASKA guys pulled this patch off his tan ball cap and gave it to me.
