Abstract:

At a time when Coast Guard Auxiliary members are increasingly augmenting Active Duty boat crews and Group or Station OPS and COMM Centers, we felt an overview of the organization would be useful, particularly for those in positions able to utilize Auxiliary support. The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the volunteer, civilian, boating safety component of the Coast Guard family. Chartered by an Act of Congress in 1939, Auxiliary membership is open to U.S. citizens over 16 years of age who own at least a 25 interest in a boat, airplane, land radio station, or possess other skills or knowledge of value to the Auxiliary. The closest parallel organization would be the Air Force Auxiliary, better known as the Civil Air Patrol. Auxiliarists may assist the Coast Guard in all activities except military and law enforcement functions.
