Historical Background

The Coast Guard Auxiliary was established by Congress in 1939 to assist the Coast Guard in promoting boating safety. We are comprised of 30,000 volunteer members nationwide from all walks of life who receive special training so that we may be a functional part of Coast Guard Forces.

Throughout the past 70 years, Auxiliarists have assisted the Coast Guard in non-law enforcement programs such as public education, vessel safety checks, safety patrols, search and rescue, maritime security and environmental protection and Coast Guard Academy introduction programs for youth.

Today’s Auxiliary does much more. Since the passage of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 1996, the Auxiliary is the “go to” volunteer group that assists the Coast Guard during times of disaster. On average, Auxiliarists volunteer more than 2 million hours  to benefit other boaters and their families.
