How the Coast Guard Auxiliary received its start

The start of the Coast Guard Auxiliary.

 

Occasionally I come across a video that I find not only informative but educational, and I feel it is important to share these videos with the future members of the Auxiliary and the Boating Public who would like to know more of what the Coast Guard Auxiliary actually does, and what our importance is the the Actual Coast Guard. It also gives you some idea how we perform our duties not only on the inland waterways but also on the coastal water as well.
