Governor Pat Quinn was in Germany Tuesday delivering holiday cards from Illinois school children to American troops.

ABC7 caught up with the governor, who was visiting a military hospital, by phone earlier Tuesday.

"Every time I come here, I'm so inspired by the patients and definitely by those who are working here," said Quinn. "They have an ethic of service, and especially at the holiday time, I think it's important that we never forget those who are on the front lines."

This is Quinn's sixth visit to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center.
