Flotilla 1-9 Uniform Information





Coast Guard Auxiliary Uniforms

An Auxiliarist needs a Tropical Blue Uniform to wear to meetings, public affairs events, etc. and an Operational Dress Uniform (ODU) to wear when serving as boat crew or doing vessel exams. Please refer to chapter 10 in the Auxiliary Manual for specific uniform information. You may also find uniform information at http://d8cr.org/uniforms.htm.

You must purchase the trousers, shirt and ODU from the Uniform Distribution Center (UDC) http://www.uscg.mil/hq/g-w/g-wp/udc/index.htm . At the UDC site, click on UDC stock book. Check the fitting guide before ordering—the sizing is not what you are used to with civilian clothes. You will purchase auxiliary-specific items from the Auxiliary Center (AUXCEN) using the link below. Before you can purchase items from AUXCEN, you will need to log on to e-directory http://www.auxedirectory.org/ to register.
