Today with 24,000 members, the Coast Guard Auxiliary is the largest maritime volunteer organization in the world and is a “force multiplier” for the U.S. Coast Guard. Trained Auxiliarists serve in every Coast Guard mission except for law enforcement.Every member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary is a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Association, a not-for-profit organization that provides the financial management and resources to ensure that the Coast Guard Auxiliary can always fulfill its mission no matter the Federal budget status.
