54 RESERVIST � Issue 1 • 2015 CG Credit Union in 8th District Expands Access The Reserve and Auxiliary forces, located within the 8th Coast Guard District, can now access the services of the Coast Guard Employees Credit Union (CGECU). The credit union was recently granted approval to expand membership to both Reserve and Auxiliary personnel living within the boundaries of the district.
