Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The focus of the Gig Harbor Detachment is based on the four cornerstones of the Auxiliary: Member Services; Recreational Boating Safety; Coast Guard Support; and Fellowship. As the Coast Guard continues to receive more tasking and mandates, it looks towards the Auxiliary to assist and fill in the gaps where ever we are authorized by law. As a civilian volunteer organization we bring many skills to the Auxiliary and we provide training where needed in order to provide the best service to the Coast Guard and the boating public. If you are interested in finding out more about the Coast Guard Auxiliary or our flotilla, please join us as a guest at one of our monthly meetings. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at our Flotilla Base located at Arabella's Landing in the lounge just behind the main office. Parking is on the street, please do not park in the gated parking lot. Need more info? feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
When you join the Coast Guard Auxiliary, you could find yourself saving lives, protecting the environment from polluters, guarding our shores from terrorists and much more. That’s our job - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That’s life in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. We don’t just train. We train and perform . Since 1939 the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary has safeguarded our Nation’s maritime interests in the heartland, in the ports, at sea, and around the globe. We protect the maritime economy and the environment, we defend our maritime borders, and we save those in peril. This history has forged our character and purpose as America’s Maritime Guardian - Always Ready for all hazards and all threats. Today’s U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, with nearly 32,000 men and women, is a unique force that carries out an array of responsibilities touching almost every facet of the U.S. maritime environment. The Coast Guard’s motto is Semper Paratus, meaning "Always Ready." The overarching mission of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is to contribute to the safety and security of our citizens, ports, waterways and coastal regions. We will balance our missions of Recreational Boating Safety and Coast Guard Support with Maritime Homeland Security and other challenges that emerge as a result of our growing understanding of changes required in the post-9/11 era.
