Sam Gibbons - Tampa Goes to War

In conjunction with Ken Burns’ The War, WUSF produced a pair of documentaries in 2007 focusing on two Bay area communities and the residents who served in the military during World War II. Former Tampa Congressman Sam Gibbons, who died this week, is among the veterans featured in this episode of Tampa Goes to War.
