Please pass along a Happy Auxiliary 85th! Birthday to your D7 Auxiliary Team. After being in this job just a year, I value the D7 Aux Team every day, supporting operations and prevention, standing the watch, providing Chaplain services, or just providing leadership and mentorship to our active duty, reserve, and civilian staff. Thank you and for volunteering to support the U.S. Coast Guard. I am honored to work with you!

Director, Homeland Security Task Force - Southeast (HSTF-SE)

Hello and Welcome to the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary District 7 Website

Martin Goodwin, District Chief of Staff, and I welcome your visit to our District 7 webpage and urge you to explore this electronic resource for information on how to join our organization. For our members, this website will assist you in finding specific information and resources relative to our purposes and missions.

District 7 is the largest of the 16 Coast Guard Districts nationwide with over 4000 dedicated volunteer men and women. Our District is a diverse cross section of our nation. District 7 Auxiliary is dedicated to support the Active-Duty Coast Guard in all its missions within our area with the exception of direct law enforcement. We are the uniformed volunteer arm of the United States Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard Auxiliary was created by U.S. Congressional legislation on June 23, 1939. In 2023 we will celebrate our 84th year of service to the Coast Guard and the Boating Public. Our list of missions is continually expanding to meet the needs of the Coast Guard and the Boating Public.

Our members come from all walks of life and are very dedicated to their missions. Auxiliarists families are also dedicated and supportive. Without their support, many members would not be able to offer their time, talents, and services to be successful in the Auxiliary. Members volunteer their boats, airplanes, radios, buy their own uniforms and pay dues to serve in the Coast Guard Auxiliary. In order to serve, many hours are spent training to become certified in all specialty fields and mission areas. Training is ongoing to become more skilled, knowledgeable, and able to serve the Coast Guard, boating public and our Nation.

The Auxiliary is a part of “Team Coast Guard” which is made up of Active Duty, Reservists, Civilians and the Auxiliary. We are the second largest component of “Team Coast Guard.” We are a service organization to the Coast Guard, the boating public and our Nation. We are Semper Paratus (always ready) to serve be it on the water, in the air or on the land.

We invite you to join our “TEAM.” Go to the top of the page under the tab “Public Info” for further information on joining our team and serving your country.
