    Coast Guard Auxiliary


      Volunteering with the Coast Guard Auxiliary is a great experience.  I joined before I retired and continue to do so now.  There are many training opportunities and whether you are physically active and want to be on the water or more sedentary, there is a way to get involved. I teach Boating Safety classes, work in recreational boating safety booths at boat shows and community festivals, do vessel examinations and do watchstanding.  The boating community is great to work with.  Also, you may believe that you have to live in a coastal area to be involved but that is not true.  I live in the Metropolitan Atlanta area and our area of responsibility includes Lake Lanier.
