WASHINGTON – In 1939, Congress established the U. S. Coast Guard Reserve, which was later renamed the Coast Guard Auxiliary in 1941. Through the years the Auxiliary has grown and changed, but we have always remained focused on our goals of saving lives through education and providing support to the U. S. Coast Guard.
As we now celebrate the anniversaries, both the 236th year of Independence of our country July 4, and recently the 73rd anniversary of the Auxiliary June 23, we need to focus on the pride we have as volunteers supporting our nation and working with the Gold side.
Volunteering is critical to the well – being of our country. We should all take pride in the 1,058,817 number of 99 hours dedicated by Auxiliarists and the 27 number of lives saved this year with 693 persons assisted since January 2012. On these anniversaries it is an excellent opportunity to show the spirit of the Auxiliary volunteerism and the dedication to supporting the Coast Guard.
We hold the Coast Guard in high esteem for their unwavering courage in their mission to save lives. Auxiliarists should take pride in their contributions of time and talent so the Gold Side can accomplish their mission.
I wish you all a happy anniversary and a summer safe on the water.
James E. Vass, Jr.
