This set of chained buttons is designed for wear on the Men’s Dinner Dress Blue Jacket (DDBJ) and Men’s Dinner Dress White Jacket (DDWJ) uniforms. It features a silver chain with medium-sized silver button embossed with the Coast Guard Auxiliary seal—a disc containing the Coast Guard shield and the circular inscription  “U.S. COAST GUARD AUXILIARY" superimposed on two anchors crossed at 45-degree angles. (Women’s versions of these uniforms do not use a chained-link closure.)

Active or retired Auxiliarists are authorized to wear the DDBJ and DDWJ at formal functions and ceremonial occasions require formal wear (Auxiliarists who have yet to purchase one of these formal uniforms may wear the Service Dress Blue uniform instead).

Retired Auxiliarists who were once in the military and who are attending military ceremonies, patriotic parades or processions where Active or Reserve personnel are participating, or other social function to which they were invited because of their previous military service are authorized to wear either the uniform that was prescribed when they retired or any dress uniform currently authorized Active-duty personnel.

However, when attending formal Auxiliary events (changes of watch, banquets, conferences) that fall within the scope of military ceremony, and Auxiliarists attending them should wear their Auxiliary uniform instead of a military uniform because they were invited due to their Auxiliarist standing, not their prior military service.
