Quote from: RiverAux on April 12, 2020, 09:29:42 pmThe active duty interaction can vary significantly depending on where you are. One the coasts it can be as great (though it can vary depending on the whims of whoever is in charge of the CG unit and their past experiences with Auxiliarists). In the middle of the country, opportunity is fewer and farther between. Some of these sorts of opportunities have decreased due to changes in how CG wants to handle things, but others have increased. If you like to cook, you can just about write your own ticket to serve on CG cutters just about anytime and anywhere you want (though travel reimbursement for getting to and from may not always be available). Most Aux work is planned and is not anywhere near as emergency-focused as CAP. So, if there is something the Aux does that you like to do, you can pretty much do it as often as you like. Much less paperwork than CAP as the CG handles most of it anyway. The only real admin work I had to do as a flotilla commander was sign new member applications and mail them off. Aux flotillas can vary as much as CAP units in what their focus is and how active they are, so shop around. Personally, I lost the drive to spend so much time in CAP training for ES missions that had become increasingly rare.
