Navigator Call for Articles

Monday, June 3, 2013


Navigator is a national print magazine that publishes stories of interest to a broad readership of Auxiliary members, military and government personnel, including members of Congress. We welcome and appreciate fresh, exciting, educational, and inspirational articles of national interest about the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Keep your story 750-1000 words unless the editor has requested differently. If you do not wish to spend time writing a story that may be unsuitable for, or unneeded by Navigator, e-mail a brief summary, 100-150 words in length, of what you’d like to write about. You will get a speedy answer as to whether it might be publishable in our magazine and a constructive evaluation of your submission that will help you become your best as a journalist.

Navigator is an annual publication. If your story has a strong time element (or immediacy) to it, consider sending it to your division or flotilla newsletter instead of Navigator.   Send your proposed submissions to:

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    My name is William Carter and I’m with Flotilla 12-8 of Charleston, SC. I recently wrote an article that appeared in our Flotilla newsletter, as well as the newsletter for Division 12 that covers the history of the Folly Beach Coast Guard Station. I decided to write on this particular topic since many in the Charleston area know that Folly Beach once had a CG Station, but they don’t know the full history of the role it played in the Second World War and then as a LORAN Station in the post-war era. I’d be more than happy to email the article to you.

    Thank you for your time.
