History of Coast Guard Mutual Assistance

CGMA Small Boats


The League of Coast Guard Women was established to “minister to the general welfare of the commissioned officers, warrant officers, enlisted men and civilian employees of the Coast Guard and their immediate families.”


Coast Guard Welfare was formally established and took over the mission from the League.


The name of the organization was changed to Coast Guard Mutual Assistance.


Coast Guard Mutual Assistance was incorporated in the State of Virginia.
