Sheppard AFB Photo Gallery

Thank you for visiting the Sheppard Air Force Base photo gallery. Since the site was established in 2007, thousands of images from training activities to support functions, family events and more have been captured and posted here. A change in the content management system has limited the number of gallery pages to 100, so guests will not be able to scroll through the pages to the very beginning of our collection. However, guests can search for images by using keywords such as names, a specific squadron, an aircraft, or event. 

Some Sheppard images and other products can also be found on our Defense Visual Information Distribution Service page.

Mrine Corps Birthday

American actor and Marine Corps veteran Wilford Brimley visited Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, on Nov. 9, to help celebrate the 242nd Marine Corps birthday at the Mesquite dining facility. Brimley participated in a cake cutting ceremony, where the oldest and youngest Marine in the detachment were served cake first. Brimley was presented a gift by the Marines and closed the celebration with remarks about pride in wearing the uniform as well as pride in serving the country.
