Fellow Auxiliary personnel, you have all contributed to and enhanced the mission of American service members. You should all be proud of maintaining high standards of service and honor. You have all been a part of the 240 year tradition of service to the people of the Unites States of America.
Please take a moment on this Independence Day to take pride and show pride in our accomplishments and our honorable duty and service supporting the Coast Guard as Auxiliary personnel. I for one am proud to know and serve alongside each and every one of you.
"...when a situation suddenly changes for the worst, we have to be [at] our best." - Lt. Israel Parker U. S. Coast Guard
