The Spaatz Gallery

With the support of our photo-hosting partner Smugmug, the Spaatz Photo Galleries are now online at


We need your help!

Our goal is to build four comprehensive photo libraries:

  • Award Presentation Gallery — a photographic journey from Spaatz Award #1 in 1964 to today.
  • Spaatz Association Events — to showcase the great events and conferences that we host or support for the benefit of the Civil Air Patrol
  • Spaatzen in the News — photos of Spaatz or COP Award recipients “in action”
  • Grants and Scholarships — photo reports from our grant and scholarship recipients.

Would you like to contribute?
