There are few men in American history who are as celebrated and honored as Sam M. Gibbons, distinguished WWII veteran and hero, U.S. Congressman for 34 years, and founder of numerous educational institutions, educational initiatives, and healthcare programs. Born and raised in Tampa, Mr. Gibbons’ lifelong commitment was to public service, education and peace. That’s why the SS American Victory dedicates its Greatest Generation Cruise to Sam M. Gibbons with great pride and respect.
To honor Mr. Gibbons and the men and women who have valiantly served our country, the SS American Victory Mariners Memorial and Museum Ship will set sail from the Port of Tampa for its Greatest Generation Cruise on Saturday, May 3, 2014.
