February 4, 2021

Virginia Wing,

Join me in congratulating C/Colonel Christiaan Grutz on earning his Spaatz Award, #2322. Only 0.5% of all cadets earn this award.

C/Col Grutz is a member of Lynchburg Composite Squadron in Group 1. He joined CAP in 2015 and has been active ever since. He recently finished his term as the cadet commander for his squadron. He has also served as a cadet deputy commander, executive officer, activities officer, administrative officer, emergency services officer, leadership officer, flight commander, flight sergeant, public affairs NCO, and element leader.

He served as cadre at Virginia Wing Encampment in 2017, 2018, and 2019. In the summer 2018 and 2019 he attended the Mid-Atlantic Region Honor Guard Academy. In 2020 he completed Region Cadet Leadership school.

Well done C/Col Grutz!


Col Dean E. Gould
