FAIRBANKS — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has made a rare public appearance since leaving office.

Anchorage television station KTUU reports Palin attended a ceremony in Fairbanks on Thursday to welcome home the 1st Stryker Brigade.

Palin’s son, Track, is a member of the brigade, which recently returned from a yearlong deployment to Iraq.

Also at the ceremony was Gov. Sean Parnell, who succeeded Palin upon her resignation July 26. Since quitting, Palin has been writing her memoirs. The former Republican vice presidential candidate’s book, “Going Rogue,” will be released Nov. 17.

A memorial unveiled Wednesday at Fort Wainwright bears the names of 12 soldiers who died in the yearlong deployment. Seven were stationed at Fort Wainwright and five were attached to the brigade.
