  • The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer component of "Team Coast Guard".  Founded in 1939 by an Act of Congress as the US Coast Guard Reserves and re-designated the Auxiliary in 1941. It is composed of nearly 35,000 members from all walks of life who are drawn together by their love of the water and a willingness to serve other boaters. Its members receive special training so that they may be a functional part of Team Coast Guard.
  • Auxiliarists assist the Coast Guard in augmentation programs such as public education, safety patrols, search and rescue, marine environmental protection, and Coast Guard Academy introduction programs for youth. Auxiliary members volunteer approximately two million hours annually to benefit other boaters and their families.
  • A few definitions and thoughts on the meaning and importance of the US Coast Guard here.
  • FYI: A certificate from a Coast Guard Auxiliary safe boating class may decrease the cost of your boating insurance.
