Moose Davis belief in me as a former enlisted man, and former combat brethen, who served together in Vietnam with the famous 173rd Airborne Brigade Separate (Sky Soldiers) was why I became a Commissioned Officer. See ya on the High Ground Moose!

There are no words to express my appreciation to all of those who transported Stewart to and from Northside Clinic. I would especially like to thank Jim Neyland for taking charge and overseeing that Stewart had a ride everyday he needed to go. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart, and may God bless each and everyone of you!

We have lost a Great American and Soldier. Moose Davis was my ROTC Instructor at Georgia State University (1976-77). I went on to make the Army a career and he managed to remain in touch all these years. I am thankful he called me just prior to entering the hospital for his latest treatments. Sadly, however, I did not connect with him again. Moose, know that your kind spirit and sense of humor will be with me and many others forever.

What an honor it was today to participate in the last act of Col. Davis' career. Without knowing him personally I can see from the photos and guest book what a fine Soldier and Christian family man he was. My condolences to his family.

Moose was a special person and touch many people with his wonderful sense of humor. I had only seen him a few times since high school, but the times that I did, he always had that big smile and fun loving spirit. I know the last year of his life was difficult, but we can now celebrate that his battle is over and rejoice in the fact he is in a better place. He will be missed.

I only saw Moose two times since we graduated, but I will always be thankful for three things that he taught me. Appreciate life, be yourself, and enjoy the time that God gives on this earth. Heaven has gained a very special man.
