Rep. Giffords to attend husband's retirement

TUCSON, Ariz.

Giffords' husband, Mark Kelly, was commander of the last and final space shuttle mission completed in May.

Kelly will retire Thursday in Washington, D.C., in a ceremony to be presided over by Vice President Joseph Biden.

Giffords will reportedly travel from Houston, where she is recuperating from a January shooting in Tucson. She will return to Houston after the ceremony.
