    Hello to anybody reading this!

    I'm a new member here, and I have a couple of questions regarding joining the USCG Auxiliary.

    I wanted to ask about what is considered disqualifying in terms of minor misdemeanors. Why I ask is because I was very immature and foolish at 18, and was caught with a marijuana pipe. it was a Misdemeanor 4, which in my state is very low. I spent 2 days in jail (it was the weekend) and got a year of unsupervised probation. I also lost my license (per state policy) for 6 months. I completed my year of probation with no issues, and have not had any other problems with the law (with the exception of 1 speeding ticket in 2010) since. All of this happened in 2008, 3 or so months after I had turned 18. I later was able to get the conviction expunged.

    Will this hinder me from joining? I hope that someone could shed some light on this, as I have looked through the AUXMAN and cant find anything in particular relating to this. I was unfortunately physically unable (weight, then later a gastric disorder) to join the USAF, but I have always had a yearning to serve my country in whatever capacity that I am able to, as I come from a military family dating back to the American Civil War. I know I messed up in my youth, but I really hope this would not be an exclusionary offense. 

    My second question is relating to duties. What all does the Auxiliary do in land-locked areas of the country? Do they primarily patrol and perform missions on reservoirs and lakes?

    Thank you all for any answers in advance!

    Welcome aboard!

    Second question first: CG Auxiliary's primary goal is boating safety. We teach it so that the Active Duty don't have to go rescue people. We do patrol on state waters and rivers (usually with some kind of memorandum with local agencies). If you PM me your zip code I can probably tell you what kind of things a local flotilla might be doing. You can look up your closest flotillas at: http://www.cgaux.org/units.php

    First question: Short answer - you should be able to join. Possession could be a major or minor misdemeanor (Aux Man lists possession or use as major, attitudes have changed). Regardless of which it is considered you should apply for membership and request a waiver, adding all the information you put in your post above. Get in contact with a flotilla you wish to join (it doesn't have to be the closest, choose based on what you want to do and what they are doing). Hang with them so they get to know you and can support your application.

    The section in the AUXMAN related to this is Chap 3, Sec A4.

    Good luck and keep us posted.
