The US Coast Guard Auxiliary is composed of volunteers who support the Coast Guard in all of its varied missions, except military and law enforcement.

These men and women can be found on the nation’s waterways and in the air performing Maritime Domain Awareness and safety patrols, in classrooms teaching boating safety, and on the docks performing vessel safety checks.

We also do watch standing at our local Coast Guard Station Oswego.

The United State Coast Guard was founded in 1939 by an act of Congress as the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve and re-designated as the Auxiliary in 1941.

Each year, the Coast Guard Auxiliary assists more than 11,000 boaters, saves more than 500 lives, and educates more than 500,000 students.
