In his final statement, Davila said, “I would like to say nephew, it burns, huh. You know, I might have lost the fight, but I’m still a soldier. I still love you all. To my supporters and family, y’all hold it down. Ten Toes down right. That’s all.”
Since Texas no longer allows special last meal requests, Davila was served the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Davila had Salisbury steak, steamed rice, brown gravy, vegetable blend, pinto beans, cornbread, butterscotch brownies, and a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.
