IDVA Director Dan Grant and the trainer for Challenger the Eagle talk to ABC7 about support for the Illinois Military Family Relief Fund, a trust fund that benefits all Illinois servicemembers who are struggling financially post-deployment.

Challenger -- who has appeared at ballparks nationwide -- was scheduled to do an annual flyover Monday at Wrigley Field during the National Anthem before the Cubs game.
