    At one point in my prior life I was young and dumb which included allowing a young marriage to interfere with an active duty enlistment into army.  I have a DD214 Uncharacterized JFW Re-entry code 3. I have no criminal history and since that point I have served almost two decades in civilian public safety. I really regret not serving at least a full contract in service and I have a calling to serve in some capacity. Can I join coast guard auxiliary with a prior DD214 JFW Reentry code 3? I am not Trying to get paid in any capacity I.e. Go reserve or active just auxiliary.  Do I have any chance at all or is my chances of ever cleaning up that young and dumb mistake  pretty much  f******?

    Your 214 status has no bearing on AUX participation, as it's a volunteer organization, albeit a very valuable one.

    CPORJM is correct that this is a volunteer organization, and your RE-3 code is fine.

    This does not apply to you, however, for general information a DD214 code of RE-4 is not eligible to join.

    This is good news as I thought I was essentially stuck to just live with it on my shoulder. If I'm willing to truly commit the time into training and classes. How active can I become as an auxiliary member? Are auxiliary members if they pass classes and obtain proper certifications can they be ever integrated with reserve and active units as long as they are willing to be unpaid for their time.

    You can be as active as you want to be in an AUX flotilla. Understand that as an AUX member, you don't have the authority under 14USC89 to conduct any of the LE missions. Look here for specific AUX info...https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/14/part-II/chapter-23

    I didn't expect that as an auxiliary member I would be allowed to directly participate in any type of law enforcement activity. Coming from essentially a fire/Ems background my entire adult life LE is not really what I was looking for anyways. I just was wanting to serve the local flotilla in any manner I could based on the training I was allowed to undertake. Which I truly was hoping part of my time could be dedicated toward SAR. SAR falls much more in line with my prior background and it appears their isn't always enough available SAR assets or personnel. I highly appreciate the feedback and it will be put to good use.

    If you wish, you can qualify and serve with the active duty. The station responsible for out AOR has aux serving as watchstanders, and I believe one who gets underway as crew. There have been recent solicitations for Aux to serve. They want people to qualify to work in the galley, and while this is mostly at stations several have serves on cutters, including one on the polar roller down to Antarctica. There was also a recent request for a clergy program, and another for people with construction/architecture. That said, mostly we educate the public so the active duty don't have to go out so often.

    Auxiliarists can volunteer as much or as little as they want. At a previous unit we had an Auxiliarist who stood communications watch almost every day at our station. As far as I know she still volunteers and is an invaluable member of the crew. At my current unit we had an Auxiliarist who sailed with us for a couple of patrols. And, recently we had several Auxiliarists augment our crew during Fleet Week which was a huge help.
