As Illinois State Treasurer, I launched "Operation Home Front" during the Gulf War to inform National Guard members and reservists about their rights under the Soldiers' & Sailors' Civil Relief Act.
As support for our service members and veterans has grown over the last decade, I have continued to adapt the site to provide information on resources available for our heroes in uniform and on ways Illinois citizens can support them.
With this most recent update to “Operation Home Front” we aim to “Honor, Support, and Connect.” Here, you will find ways to honor our Fallen, to support our Troops, and to connect service members, veterans, and their families with the right resource at the right time.
The men and women of our military make great sacrifices to serve our country and protect our freedoms. Taking care of them is all of our responsibility. Join me in making sure that Illinois is a leader when it comes to supporting the troops!
God Bless America
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn
