Dr. Davis is the epitome of a true patriot and has demonstrated this characteristic in her national and international exposure as an astronaut, as well as in her numerous academic and work environments.

Huntsville, Alabama, was honored to display the Moving Vietnam Veterans Wall, a half-size replica of the memorial in Washington, D.C. Two structures of the Moving Wall travel the United States April through November, spending a week at each site. Our chapter honored these veterans on October 27, 2000, at Big Spring Park.

Children of the American Revolution, led by Carroll Strickland of the Huntsville Chapter (who also donated the 100+ sand-filled paper bags containing votive candles), placed the lighted tribute to these men and women who gave their lives for our country. Twickenham Town Chapter members Jeanne Henry and Ann Lusk presented a beautiful floral arrangement, and C.A.R. members presented a patriotic wreath.

Each year on September 17th, at exactly 4:00 p.m., many of our chapter members and their families celebrate "Bells Across America" by visiting beautiful and historic downtown Huntsville to ring the Liberty Bell at Constitution Village. Costumed players at the village demonstrate candle making, farming, and gardening, and many churches in downtown also ring their bells in support.
