Yeah, Wiki still has Lolo’s father getting killed by the Dutch in the revolution, while Maraniss found relatives who said he had a heart attack standing on the couch to hang drapes...but...Wiki has no trace of a military background, much less being a “colonel.” Lolo was clearly a geographer by training and profession which is only tangentially linked to the military through civilian employment.
“Soetoro earned his bachelor's degree in geography from Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta. In 1962, Soetoro, then a civilian employee of the Indonesian Army Topographic Service, obtained an East-West Center grant for graduate study in geography at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He arrived in Honolulu in September 1962 and graduated from the university with a M.A. in geography in June 1964.”
