Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords served Thanksgiving dinner to military servicepeople at a base in her home district, making her first interactions with constituents since a January assassination attempt nearly killed her.
Giffords worked the turkey station with her husband Mark Kelly. They arrived at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson around midday and stayed for nearly an hour. Giffords spoke with constituents and thanked them for their service.
"She's such an inspiration and her story is so inspirational, it really made me proud. I felt very proud and very humble," Airman 1st Class Millie Gray said. "It just feels really good to see that she is out here supporting the troops, and just continuing to be an inspiration and a strong role model for Americans in general."
