Field of flags

On September 11, 2003, 3,412 American flags were unfurled in a tribute field in Odessa, Texas. Each flag represented an individual who lost his or her life in the terrorist attacks on America on September 11, 2001.  This memorial was also a tribute to the endurance of those who survived, the courage of those who risked their lives to save others, and the compassion of all who supported us in one of our nation's darkest hours. We shall not forget!

Chapter History:  The Nathaniel Davis Chapter was formed on May 21, 1957. Nathaniel Davis, the Revolutionary soldier for whom the chapter was named, served as a sergeant of the 5th Virginia Regiment with unfailing courage in the war from February 14, 1776 to March 5, 1778. Sergeant Davis is the Revolutionary ancestor of Miss Frances EuJean Smith, the Organizing and first regent of this chapter.

The first chapter officers took the oath of office in the home of Mrs. Henry W. Fullingim. Mrs. Felix Irvin, State Regent, Texas Society Daughters of the American Revolution, conducted the meeting. The charter was recorded by National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and granted by Mrs. Frank G. Tray, Organizing Secretary General.

Chapter meetings:  The second Saturday of each month, September through May, at 2 p.m.
