Sec. 831. Assignment and performance of duties

-STATUTE-

No member of the Auxiliary, solely by reason of such membership,

shall be vested with, or exercise, any right, privilege, power, or

duty vested in or imposed upon the personnel of the Coast Guard or

the Reserve, except that any such member may, under applicable

regulations, be assigned duties, which, after appropriate training

and examination, he has been found competent to perform, to

effectuate the purposes of the Auxiliary. No member of the

Auxiliary shall be placed in charge of a motorboat, yacht,

aircraft, or radio station assigned to Coast Guard duty unless he

has been specifically designated by authority of the Commandant to

perform such duty. Members of the Auxiliary, when assigned to

duties as herein authorized shall, unless otherwise limited by the

Commandant, be vested with the same power and authority, in the

execution of such duties, as members of the regular Coast Guard

assigned to similar duty. When any member of the Auxiliary is

assigned to such duty he may, pursuant to regulations issued by the

Secretary, be paid actual necessary traveling expenses, including a

per diem allowance in conformity with standardized Government

travel regulations in lieu of subsistence, while traveling and

while on duty away from his home. No per diem shall be paid for

any period during which quarters and subsistence in kind are

furnished by the Government, and no per diem shall be paid for any

period while such member is performing duty on a vessel.
