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.
The Sheppard Fire Emergency Services Bell is on display as part of the 9/11 20th Anniversary Memorial Service at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, Sept. 10, 2021. In years past, bells were used in firehouses to signifiy the beginning of the day's shift. Bells were also used to signify when an alarm was sounded and when the call had been completed. In the most reverent of circumstances, the bell was used to pay tribute to fallen comrades who perished in the line of duty. A member of the Sheppard Fire Department completed a series of five bell rings in honor of those who gave their lives on 9/11. (U.S. Air Force photo by 2nd Lt. Logan Thomas)
