    Hey everyone. I'm 19 years old. Going to school for business administration, and I really wanted to join the USCG but I was recently diagnosed with Lupus. So I thought of joining the USCG Aux.  I don't know how active I would be able to be but I could definitely help out a few times a month. 

    I just wanted to ask, do I need to join my local flotilla? Or can I go down to the one an hours drive to the coast?

    I know they are mostly older volunteers there but will they look at me funny being I am 60 minutes out?

    You could work at just about any flotilla in your area. They prefer you to live within an hour which fits you, so that'd be fine.

    You can actually shop around for flotillas and even though you become a member of a particular flotilla you can (once you're trained and qualified) serve on operations with other flotillas and also at the Division. Don't let it bother you that some (or most) of the guys are older folks who remember JFK. Learn from them and do what you can. Your enthusiasm will also motivate them somewhat and you can be a real asset with youth and speed to balance out some of the older guys experience and knowledge. You'll be a plus to them and they'll be a plus to you. I highly recommend you choose a flotilla that is close enough so you can participate without a strain on your travel budget but also remember a little extra travel to be with a flotilla that suits you is a good thing.

    BTW, there are lots of educational opportunities and scholarships via the Aux.
    As a member of the Aux. you're permitted to take any on-line course offered by the Coast Guard Institute and I believe any online courses offered by the Coast Guard Academy (need to double check) subject to availability and approval by the instructors.

    You can even apply to the academy. Actually, you can apply to the academy even without being in the Aux but the standards are high and if you have Lupus you might not meet the medical and PT standards.

    You should look into the scholarships and grants also.
