Coast Guard Recruiting Region 4 Auxiliary Branch Chief Thomas E. Duhon (on right) assisted Senior Chief Mark Molina, Recruiter In Charge, of Recruiting Office New Orleans, at the HBCU Legacy Bowl Career Fair.  An estimated 1,500 students from 49 different colleges attended the event.



Auxiliarists Cecelia Cervi and Brian Smith represented Coast Guard Recruiting at the University of Rhode Island, College of Environmental Sciences on 07 FEB 2024.  Auxiliary member Cervi is a current student at URI studying Marine Affairs:

The URI Marine Affairs department enrolls several Coast Guard officers into its graduate programs each year. 



 Coast Guard Auxiliary Recruiting Support Specialist Andrew Burkart, Region 4 Branch Chief, teamed up with MST3 Montagne and YN2 Somers from MSU Paducah, KY at the Livingston Central High School Career Fair. Although MSU (Marine Safety Unit) personnel are not trained as recruiters, pairing active duty with a trained Auxiliary Recruiting Support Specialist makes a synergistic presentation.

 Auxiliary member Kathy Hubert and LT Ryan Thomas talk to a nursing student about the CG Health Services Rate at the Fall 2023 Cape Coral Technical College Career Day event. Having a local, trained Auxiliary member to provide follow up support for recruiting prospects is extremely valuable.
