Unique Buildings 10 10 When the Alaska Railroad retired a fleet of cabooses, the city of Whittier, Alaska acquired one in 1990 and allowed the Auxiliary to use the caboose as the home for Flotilla 02-04 (D17). Area Auxiliarists renovated and painted it in Team Coast Guard colors and it soon became a Whittier icon. To local Auxiliarists, “The Caboose” is a focal point of Auxiliary activities. For the public, everyone notices its unique colors and is mindful of the Coast Guard’s presence. USCG Aux Are You Aboard? STAY CONNECTED!
