PJ Mike Maroney

This is real cool.
I remember seeing the picture of Mike with the little girl in a magazine before I joined, and much later, meeting him in passing.
Keep your mouth shut and listen. That is the best piece of advice I have been given.

Mike was actually on the lower set of some stairs for these pictures and is much taller in real life - just so everyone else knows.

I do not know him, but I know someone who does. Says he is very humble. Went through 3 indocs and dive school twice.
