(CBS/AP) TUCSON, Ariz. - U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords helped serve a Thanksgiving meal to service members and retirees at a military base
in her hometown of Tucson, Ariz.

Giffords arrived in the dining hall at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base at midday Thursday wearing a ball cap and an apron with her nickname
of "Gabby" sewn on the front. She was accompanied by her retired astronaut husband, Mark Kelly, who also donned an apron.

Giffords used only her left hand as she served, a sign that physical damage remains from the injuries she suffered when she was shot in January.

Kelly supported her from her left side as she worked the turkey station on the serving line. He served ham.



I loves me some Gabby! :patriot:

Happy thanksgiving.
