Washington Post: Rep. Gabrielle Giffords will visit the White House on Thursday to attend a retirement ceremony there for her husband, astronaut and U.S. Navy Capt. Mark Kelly.

… According to a statement issued by Giffords’ congressional office, Vice Presidnent Joe Biden will administer a retirement oath, and he and Kelly will each give brief remarks at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building at 1 p.m.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and NASA Administrator Charles F. Bolden will attend the ceremony, along with a handful of Kelly’s and Giffords’s colleagues in Congress and at NASA.

It would appear we now know which of these two possibilities is correct.
