FSO-MT Bill MauneyFlotilla 20-02's own FSO-MT (Member Training) Bill Mauney, has many thoughts.

By the time he graduated from High School, he was proficient in handling canoes and sailboats as well as motorboats. He also learned to fly an airplane.

He attended the U.S. Naval Academy, where, among other things, he raced sailboats up to 65 feet in length and expanded his boat and ship handling skills. He also became a certified scuba diver.

He went on to matriculate at Outward Bound, where he got into backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, search and rescue, and wilderness canoeing. He earned a master of science degree from Mankato State College (now Minnesota State University) in Experiential Education, spent some time in the Marines, and, with the help of others founded and directed the VENTURE experiential education program at UNC-Charlotte with emphasis on backpacking and rock climbing, got married.
