Chapter 34

California's Coast Guard Chapter 34 - Northern California was created (like its sister Chapter 43 - Southern California) to serve as an unique ROA chapter for the smaller numbers of Coast Guard Reservists and Retirees in the North part of the State.  Recognizing that the voice of the Service is sometimes a small part of larger, multi-service chapters, Chapter 34 deals exclusively with Coast Guard issues that affect members throughout Northern California as well as Coast Guard-specific issues that can more readily be addressed by a group such as this.  In this way, issues of the Coast Guard can be raised to higher levels within the ROA organization and addressed on equal terms with the rest of the membership at large.
