The CG Auxiliary Job of Reporting PatoNs!
  • Your job of reporting discrepancies to the
    Coast Guard should be completed within 24 hours
    from the time and date of the observation (both
    initial report and follow-up)
  • Dont bother to send outdated discrepancy or
    verification reports since they have no value and
    will be discarded.
