“Keep the dignity of this green beret”

The event was graced by the presence of Commander of the Special Operations Group (21 GGK) Mej Gen Adi Ridzwan Abdullah.

Adi took the opportunity to remind the new commandos of the responsibilities that come with wearing the green beret, a symbol of professionalism and competence.

“Keep the dignity of this green beret from being tarnished with useless actions because it will later cost all the sacrifices of all those who have worked hard to get it,” he advised.

He further warned against misconduct, emphasizing the gravity of their roles as “Special Forces Operators”.

“It is very unfortunate if the green beret that is worn has to be stripped in a heinous manner due to misconduct such as disobeying instructions or committing acts contrary to service rules,” he cautioned.
