Sheppard AFB, Texas  76311

Our mission as the General Charles L. Donnelly Chapter of AFA is to

educate the public on USAF issues and the critical need for technology;

advocate aerospace power and a strong national defense;

support the United States Air Force, the Air Force family, and aerospace education;

and maintain the outstanding relationship between Sheppard AFB and the surrounding communities.

The Chapter was named in honor of General Charles L. Donnelly (1929-1994).  He entered the USAF in 1951 and after a stellar career as a fighter pilot, served as the Commander of the Technical Training Center at Sheppard AFB before being assigned as

the Commander of U.S. Forces Japan (1981-1984) and finally retiring as the  Commander USAFE in 1987.  He then served as the AFA Executive Director from 1988-1989

Sheppard AFB is the largest and most diversified training base in AETC.  In addition to on-site training groups, the 82nd Training Wing supports a worldwide network of training detachments
