(Newser) – Rep. Gabrielle Giffords helped serve a Thanksgiving meal to service members and retirees at a military base in her hometown of Tucson. Giffords arrived in the dining hall at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base at midday 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. Afterward, she mingled with service members, exchanging pleasantries and mostly one-word greetings and responses.
