CHICAGO, Ill -- Monday, Governor Quinn joined with Operation Support Our Troops in Chicago to launch the "America Has Not Forgotten" awareness campaign.

The campaign encourages Americans to take small actions to show their support for those who are serving overseas.

These actions can include writing a weekly note of support to service members or flying the flag at half-mast on the last Friday of each month in honor of those lost in the war during that month.

Operation Support Our Troops will also be collecting non-perishable foods throughout the month.
