The interim VA secretary is no stranger to Birmingham.  Sloan Gibson served as CFO at AmSouth.  He retired in 2004.  Gibson was also active in local civic organizations, including the United Way of Central Alabama.  President Obama Friday appointed Gibson to serve, after the resignation of embattled VA secretary Eric Shinseki.      Congressman Spencer Bachus (R-Vestavia) called Gibson "a friend of veterans and a highly capable administrator."
