Appearance
The public does not differentiate between Coast Guard
active duty and the Auxiliary, especially when the uniform
is worn. Coast Guard active duty members are bound by
strict military grooming and weight standards. Realizing
that the Auxiliary is made up entirely of volunteers, the
active duty grooming and appearance standards are
relaxed as they apply to Auxiliarist. As a matter of pride,
all Auxiliary members should set the goal to strive to
attain the same standards as active duty members.
Auxiliarist who wear the Auxiliary uniform will be held to
higher grooming and appearance standards than those
who wear the Auxiliary Blue Blazer outfit. The Auxiliary
Blue Blazer outfit is optional apparel and is authorized for
activities described in Chapter 10.

Makeshift Uniforms
• Members need to be aware that active duty members wear the
uniform with pride and when they see an Auxiliarist improperly
dressed it can be seen as offensive to the service.
Additionally, most Auxiliarist interact with stations where the
young influential active duty members are abundant. Here, it’s
especially important to set the proper uniform image at all
levels.
• If it doesn't match the material and construction, it is no-longer
uniform

• If one cannot afford the cost of a proper uniform do
not to spend the money on creating a look alike.
Someone right out of boot camp can spot the
difference quicker than saying Semper Paratus.
• It would be better if the member is in civilian attire
than a improper uniform.

Grooming
• Auxiliarist who desire to wear their hair, jewelry, or
maintain a general appearance different from that
described in Chapter 10 shall wear the Auxiliary
Blue Blazer outfit instead of the Auxiliary uniform.

appearance standards described in Chapter 10
