Welcome to the Division 3, District 8WR Web Site

Welcome to Division 3 of the United States Coast Guard 8th Western Rivers Region and thank you for taking the time to view our website. The US Coast Guard Auxiliary is a civilian, volunteer organization administered by the Commandant of the United States Coast Guard, under the direction of the Secretary of Homeland Security. Auxiliary volunteers are primarily tasked with recreational boating safety. We receive specialized training in order to conduct marine and air patrols on and over local waterways, assist in Search and Rescue, teach boating safety classes, conduct free courtesy vessel safety checks for the public, and assist the Coast Guard in times of emergencies. Advanced training prepares us to serve alongside our active-duty shipmates as communications watchstanders, pilots or air crew, interpreters, and even as chefs! We are a force multiplier for the U. S. Coast Guard and participate in all Coast Guard missions except for direct law enforcement and direct military missions.

Division 3's Locale

Division 3 is one of 12 Divisions in District 8, Western Rivers, which encompasses all or part of 16 states. Our Division is located in the St. Louis Metropolitan area and Lake of the Ozarks and is divided into  eight flotillas.  The flotilla is the grassroots, elemental work group within the USCG Auxiliary. It’s made up of people with differing levels of education, talent, experiences and of differing ages, but who are united in their commitment to working together to serve their country through the US Coast Guard. Each of our eight flotillas meet monthly in a different geographical location.

Benefits of Membership

Membership in the Auxiliary is open to persons 17 years of age and older. Our members come from many different backgrounds allowing us to utilize various skill sets, talents and experiences. Some of our members join with little or no boating experience, while others are seasoned licensed Captains. A new category of membership is SEA SCOUTS. We have retired military members and members with no military experience but a common denominator among all members is a love of country and a desire to keep the boating public safe on American waterways. We live by the USCG Auxiliary’s core valves of HONOR, RESPECT and DEVOTION TO DUTY.
