New Sons PSAs highlight the Legion's centennial, importance of family

Two new public service announcements (PSAs) from Sons of The American Legion National Commander Greg “Doc” Gibbs reflect this year’s theme of “Honoring the Past … Continuing the Legacy” while encouraging membership for those eligible for the Sons.

In one video, Gibbs touts the accomplishments of The American Legion, among them the GI Bill and relief efforts for disaster victims and children. “Help us pay tribute to a century of service to the community, state, and nation, by joining the Sons of The American Legion today,” Gibbs said.

Gibbs also references the importance of family in another new video, reflecting on his father’s service in the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II.

“He came home to raise our family according to the values that he learned in the U.S. Marine Corps—semper fidelis, always faithful, always loyal. … Together we stand for veterans, like my dad, and the values they fought for,” Gibbs said.
