Spaatzen Sweep Top CAP Awards

In what may be a first, Spaatz recipients took all three major awards recognizing CAP’s top members at the National Board Meeting and Annual Conference in Atlanta.

Wisconsin Wing’s Stephen Kohler, #912, was named CAP’s Senior Member of the Year and in a surprise ceremony was promoted to lieutenant colonel by CAP National Commander Brig Gen James C. Bobick and USAF Chief of Staff General Michael E. Ryan.

Tammy Jo Blevins, #1301, accepted plaques from CAP and the Air Force Association recognizing her as CAP’s Cadet of the Year, as previously reported.

And finally, Gary Boyd, #327, was named recipient of the F. Ward Reilly Leadership Award in recognition of his exemplary leadership. Gary commands Idaho Wing’s Coeur d’Alene Composite Squadron, CAP’s Squadron of Distinction for 1998. (Civil Air Patrol photos/Jim Tynan) Updated 6 Sep 98
