The Memorial Wall is sponsored and maintained by the Past Commanders' Association through dues and donations. The intent of the Memorial Wall is to honor those members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary who have "Crossed the Bar"* while faithfully serving in the Auxiliary or when retired from the Auxiliary.
Names are added to the Memorial Wall the year following a member's 'Crossing'. A memorial service is held each year, as part of Grand Haven's Coast Guard Festival.
Also see The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Memorial Guide Book for other traditions.
The President of the Past Commnders' Association term begins on January 1st. following the election, usually at the Fall Conference, and runs for two consecutive years.
The purpose of the Past Commanders' Association is to assist in furthering the Auxiliary Programs in the 9th Central Region; to provide effective liaison between the current Division Commanders and the 9th Central Region Staff Officers; to provide upon request, administrative assistance to incumbent Division Commanders; and to serve in any capacity designated by the District Commodore.
