Coast Guard Auxiliary being organized
The US Coast Guard Auxiliary is looking to start a detachment in the Maysville area.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary is a civilian, non-military component of the Coast Guard team, created by Congress in 1939. The auxiliary directly supports the Coast Guard in all of its missions except military and law enforcement.
Recreational boating is growing in the United Stated. To help make boating safer for all, the auxiliary needs more quality members. US citizens 17 years of age and older can join. The auxiliary is looking for a diversity of dedicated people who are interested in boating safety and assisting the Coast guard as auxiliary members. Boat, airplane, radio ownership are not required to become an auxiliarist.
Volunteer auxiliarists nationwide actively patrol our waterways and regularly meet with the boating public at marinas and in classrooms.
Auxiliarists also serve side-by-side with active duty members of the Coast Guard team at their stations and in times of disaster.
Another of the auxiliary's trademarks is good old-fashioned hospitality and fun. You'll find a special camaraderie among auxiliarists during outings, training sessions, patrols and classes.
Look us over, ask questions and if you would like to be among the 34,000 auxiliarists in the Coast Guard family, or would like to have more information, come to the recruitment session on March 17 or 22, between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. at the Maysville City Building, 216 Bridge Street, in the Commissioner's Chambers.
