2 Topics: Looking good Uniforms / Appearance Grooming Protocol National Department of Human Resource

3 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. National Department of Human Resource

5 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, its 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 National Department of Human Resource

6 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. National Department of Human Resource
