The navy ship named after former Southern Arizona congresswoman Gabby Giffords was christened Saturday in Mobile, Alabama. Vice President Joe Biden's wife Jill attended the ceremony for the U.S.S. Gabrielle Giffords.
"I'm thrilled to be here today," said Giffords. "Thank you for this honor. In Congress I was proud to support our armed forces. I love the Navy. I even married a sailor." Link
Perhaps I'm late to the party on this one, but the USS GG was apparently just christened yesterday.
I guess we've run out of Medal of Honor recipients, or other who are no longer with us....who have contributed mightily to our defense and our culture.
