Keith R Parris - United States Air Force Pilot Wings
Sheppard's Gate

Sheppard's Gate

A gate may denote a controlling barrier or an opening for passage. Sheppard's Gate holds the key to the fortunes of two lieutenants whose brief friendship changes their world forever. Troy Pearson and Brennan Frazier know little of that supposed power for good or bad controlling their futures except, perhaps, their expectations of where their next assignments will lead. On a cold, March morning, with foreboding clouds rolling across the barren tarmac of Zaragoza Air Base, Spain, Lieutenant Pearson and Lieutenant Frazier have been reunited for a routine air-to-ground gunnery mission on Bardenas Reales Range. Some would say that chance brought them together at this place. Others would say that their fates were sealed the day they passed through the gate at Sheppard Air Force Base. How they even came to fly this mission in unbelievably marginal conditions is a mystery for the ages, but there is no mystery about the radio call coming over guard frequency and warning that two Phantom F-4E fighter aircraft are downed somewhere in the hills of the desolate, Spanish terrain.

Sheppard's Gate is a book of passion and understanding about the camaraderie, trust and sacrifice of our men and women in military service overseas. It captures the exhilaration that sustains and sometimes haunts the dreams of ambitious fighter pilots. In this rewriting of his earlier novel, The Servants of Freedom, the author has improved the book from start to finish, adding new characters and scenes that enhance the enjoyment of his insightful storytelling. Join the souls on board Sheppard's Gate in their struggles with adversity and their search for life and love.
