Featured Photo – USCG Auxiliary Training Center Marcus Hook

Thursday, May 30, 2013


Marcus Hook, PA – USCG Auxiliary Training Center Marcus Hook was created for the training of all D5-NR Auxiliary members.  These trained and qualified members provide recreational boating safety and other benefits to recreational boaters and the USCG throughout the region.

In addition to the development of an Auxiliary Training Center, the Auxiliary received a 31’ SAFE Boat and trailer from the Borough of Marcus Hook.  The vessel will be an additional asset available to be used extensively for the training of Auxiliarists in the Boat Crew program and for safety patrols.

Editors note – Marcus Hook, PA is a southern suburb of Philadelphia, PA.

    To D5NR

    As a native Philadelphian, I am proud to see this unit established in my hometown AOR. I will try to emulate it in D11SR as imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    Well done, BZ’s to all.
