Coast Guard Auxiliary Uniforms are worn anytime you are officially representing the Auxiliary and/or CG (Aux Manual Ch 10 Section A - page 427)

After the Provisional Membership period & initial PSI Determination have been successfully completed, the member is responsible for procuring appropriate uniforms.  See Aux Manual Ch 10 (page 425), New Member Reference Guide, Properly wearing CG Auxiliary Uniforms & Basic Qualification Course Module 3 for additional information & guidance on the "Uniform of the Day" (UoD) for use in different situations.

The Tropical Blue (TROP) & Operational Dress Uniform (ODU) with necessary accessories are the primary uniforms worn by Auxiliarists.  Used Uniform items may be available from your Flotilla grab bag, Used Uniform Exchanges or Navy Marine Corps Relief Society Thrift Store (Annapolis, MD).

Tropical Blue (TROP)

Uniform of the Day (UoD) for all occasions when a tie is not required or appropriate & the uniform would not typically be expected to be soiled during the activity.

Operational Dress Uniform (ODU)

Uniform of the Day (UoD) in working situations or whenever there is a chance of the uniform becoming soiled.  Not intended for formal or office wear.

New ODU uniforms should only be ordered from the Uniform Distribution Center (UDC).  Be sure to review the Sizing Guide before placing an order.

The Tucked version is authorized for CGAux wear until "No Longer Serviceable" (when stains, threadbare surfaces, rips, faded colors or similiar signs of deterioration are present).

Wearing metal devices or any type of attachments with the ODU are not authorized in operational situations.  Guide on properly wearing the ODU.
