On Sunday, Governor Pat Quinn joined with United Airlines to encourage people throughout Illinois to support "Operation Hero Miles."

Through the program, people can donate their frequent flyer miles and provide military families with a chance to visit their loved ones recovering in military hospitals around the world.

Quinn heads to Germany Sunday to visit wounded U.S. service members.

It will be his eighth trip to visit wounded soldiers at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and Fisher House in Germany.

On Monday, Quinn will be a guest on ABC7's Windy City Live, which airs at 9 a.m.
