During World War II, Auxiliarists used their own boats to protect our ports and patrol our coasts from the German submarine threat. Following the war, the number of privately owned vessels exploded and the Auxiliary resumed its more traditional role of leading recreational boating safety. Over the years, the Auxiliary has continued to provide direct support as the Coast Guard has been assigned more missions with little increase in manpower or assets. Today, there are over 30,000 Coast Guard Auxiliarists supporting the Coast Guard in virtually all of its missions throughout the country.

24 Feb 2018 14:00 : February Family Day https://www.houstonmaritime.org/visit/hmmcalendar/eventdetail/459/-/february-family-day https://www.houstonmaritime.org/visit/hmmcalendar/eventdetail/459/-/february-family-day Stranded

On your way back to the coast, the wind starts to whirl and the waves splash higher. The dark clouds block the sun while the rain pours down. Before you know it, the sun wakes you up and you find yourself on a desert island with a broken boat by your side. What will you do?

Families are invited to get rescued by creating flotation devices, making signal flag coasters, writing unique messages in a bottle, and participating in a special activity with the Coast Guard Auxiliary!
