Posted By on Fri, Jan 21, 2011 at 9:32 AM

Motorcycles are parked outside of University Medical Center. A group of VFW motorcycle riders volunteered to escort the ambulance carrying Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base this morning, as she is transferred to a rehabilitation facility in Houston. The congresswoman rode with this group in May 2009, when they escorted the remains of Civil War-era veterans from Tucson to Sierra Vista.
