CG Auxiliary hosts regional training symposium

More than 500 Coast Guard auxiliarists from around the Great Lakes region, and as far away as Alaska and Hawaii - as well as active duty and civilian members of the U.S. Coast Guard - gathered in Michigan a week ago for a training symposium. The symposium was held March 27 to April 2 in Pontiac. It was intended to improve their boating skills and public water safety programs for safeguarding mariners.
