The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA) is a public service organization supporting the United States Coast Guard in the missions of Member Services, Recreational Boating Safety, Operations and MarineSafety.  USCGA Flotilla 1-8, “the Guardians of the Blackwater” hold their regular monthly meetings on the 4th Thursday of each month, at 7 pm (1900), at the City of Milton Fire Department, 5321 Stewart Street, Milton, Florida.

Some of the reasons you might be interested in becoming a member include self-improvement; personal satisfaction in assisting the Coast Guard missions, participation in diverse activities for boat owners as well as non-boat owners.  For school students 17 and over, we have many Coast Guard programs that you might be interested in.
