Obama taps deputy sec'y on job since February to run Veterans Affairs Department as interim
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says the man he's chosen to run the Veterans Affairs Department on an interim basis will have a learning curve to overcome.
Sloan Gibson is currently the department's deputy secretary but he's been at the department for less than four months.
Gibson came to the VA after five years as president and CEO of the USO.
That non-profit organization serves U.S. troops and their families. Before that, Gibson spent 20 years in the banking industry.
He is the son of an Army Air Corpsman who served in World War II and the grandson of a World War I Army infantryman.
He's also a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Gibson replaces VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, who resigned Friday.
