502 Spaatz Recipients

The General Carl A. Spaatz Award

General Carl A. Spaatz was the First Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force and first Chairman of the CAP National Board.  Earning the Spaatz Award is no easy task!  Estimates are about five out of every thousand cadets (one half of one percent) who join CAP will achieve the Spaatz Award during their service as cadets. 

To promote Esprit De Corps, 502 Cadets will begin researching previous Squadron 502 Spaatz recipients.  Their research will be placed on this page as it becomes available.
