Cedar Creek Lake, TX
Join the Auxiliary

Who can be a member?

  • The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is a civilian organization of volunteers.  Membership is open to citizens of the United States, it's territories and possessions, who are 17 years of age and older, and have not been convicted of a felony.  Facility ownership (radio station, boat, or aircraft) is desirable but not mandatory.
  • Those individuals with special training or experience in any Auxiliary program area also are desirable for Auxiliary membership.  The same is true for any individual who has specific skills helpful to the organization.
  • Auxiliary membership is also open to all or former members of any uniformed services and their service components.
Members are people who have an interest in serving the boating community, and their country through the various Missions of the Auxiliary.

What are the benefits of membership?

  • Service to the country and community:
  • Particularly since the tragic events of September 11th 2001, Auxiliary personnel have been of great help to the Coast Guard by taking care of many of the non-military/non-law enforcement missions of the Coast Guard.  This helps free the Coast Guard to focus more assets on Homeland Security and anti-terrorist activities in addition to their other law enforcement and military missions.
  • Free Training:
  • As a member of the Auxiliary, you have direct access to all Auxiliary Public Education training programs in addition to many U.S. Coast Guard training programs not offered to the general public.
  • Fellowship:
  • This is the heart of the Auxiliary. Our membership is a wonderful group of Friends, which have a similar goal. We have a great time promoting boating safety.  We want to keep our pristine waters safe and fun for everyone, including ourselves. We enjoy our social activities but the Auxiliary is not a social organization. Rather we are a SERVICE ORGANIZATION providing needed support to the Coast Guard and the Boating Public.  See More Auxiliary Membership Benefits.
  • You are bound to find a place where your skills, experience, and interests can be of service!
