Gov. stops in Germany post-Afghanistan visit

July 21, 2009 Quinn also made a stop in Afghanistan. Photos released by the Department of Defense show Quinn meeting with Illinois servicemembers at the Task Force Phoenix headquarters. Quinn took part in an award ceremony for the men and women there.

Last weekend, the governor met with troops in Iraq and Monday troops in Afghanistan. He is traveling with a delegation of four other US governors.
