In my experience, it takes a strong person to accept even the most constructive of criticisms in a positive light. Nonetheless, honest self examination is always a good thing from which we could all benefit, I'm sure. It's hard to do though because you have to be simultaneously harsh on and fair to yourself. That's a mighty fine line to draw in most cases.
I don't know the specifics of what caused the decision Davis' employer made. But I have known Davis as a professional colleague for several years now, and I think of him as one of the good guys.

Please do not take offense to my comments.  I have gathered a feeling from reading your post that you may be a little difficult to work with.  That is likely the reason you were let go.
How about starting fresh and willingly make field visits.  Do what ever it takes.  It may seem unfair but no one wants to have to talk an employee into working.  Get your own insurance.  Remember:  "Champions Adjust".  Also, just tell them that in your division there was just not enough work.
You mentioned 30 years of experience.  Probably 4 or 5 with your most recent employer?  Build on your previous experience and speak kindly of your recent employer.
