The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed, all-volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard. The Auxiliary was created by an Act of Congress in 1939, and has grown to over 28,000 members who daily support the Coast Guard in all its non-military, and non-law-enforcement missions.
Auxiliary members conduct safety patrols on local waterways, assist in Search and Rescue, teach boating safety classes, conduct free vessel safety checks for the public, provide boating safety literature to dealers, as well as many other activities related to recreational boating safety.
While District 14 is one of the smallest Districts in number of Auxiliarists, it is the largest in terms of area of patrol responsibility. Over 430 Auxiliary members work alongside 1,150 Active Duty, 150 Reserve, and 80 Civilian members of the Coast Guard to serve an area of 12.2 million square miles of land and sea including Hawaii, American Samoa, Saipan, and Guam. In 2015, nearly 37,000 hours of volunteer service were performed by District 14 Auxiliarists.
