-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.
