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
