As a volunteer organization, the Auxiliary has
its own uniqueness. Our members serve in communities throughout
the country; come from different social, ethnic, religious and
economic backgrounds, yet join together to contribute their time
and talents toward the common cause of recreational boating
safety. We will recognize our diversity and remove all barriers,
real or perceived, so that our current and potential members
will feel an increased pride and honor in their membership.
Coast Guard Auxiliary will:
HONOR the members' desire for training and meaningful
involvement, so that we can enhance the Coast Guard's
capabilities and promote safety in the boating community.
RESPECT the volunteer nature of our organization and its unique
attributes, which enable us to fulfill our role as an integral
part of Team Coast Guard.
RECOGNIZE and encourage DEVOTION TO DUTY, while understanding
the diversity of our volunteers and their varying abilities to
give of their time.
PROVIDE our current and potential members with a positive
environment that will promote membership in all segments of our
population, enhance their opportunities to serve and increase
their desire to remain as long term contributing members.

JOB ONE to expand our membership diversity and strengthen our
ability to be Semper Paratus.
