Send us your articles and photos!

Navigator is the annual national printed magazine that publishes stories of interest to a broad readership of Auxiliary members, military personnel, and government officials, including members of Congress.It is a mix of new content and the most interesting stories from around the Auxiliary during the past calendar year. We aspire to give our members the sense that they are part of one national unit, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and are inspired by success to take action in their local units. For the public, we seek to tell our story so that they understand that we are Semper Paratus and why we are valued members of Team Coast Guard. We welcome and appreciate fresh, exciting, educational, and inspirational articles of national interest about the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.

We encourage our talented Auxiliarist-writers to submit their best articles. We depend on articles from all Auxiliary levels, from the flotilla to district, to tell our story. Just as Public Affairs is the responsibility of every Auxiliarist, finding and sharing quality stories and photos are too. So, let's “Tell it all and Tell it now”!

The ABCs of Auxiliary Publications is accuracy, brevity, and clarity. The ideal length for a story intended for publication in Navigator is 750 to 1000 words, or equal to a page and a half to two pages.

Great photographs give your stories a visual impact. Please include three to five quality unedited photos (preferably in .jpeg or .png format) with your story submissions. Also be sure to include a caption with each photo describing what is taking place, along with the names of each person in the photo, and the name of the photographer. Please include the proper rank of any active duty personnel and the office of any Auxiliarists when it is relevant to the story.

Please submit articles through our National Article Submission Portal, located here:
