Operation 'Hero Miles' to expand frequent flier miles donation program

The road to recovery for wounded military members can be a long one. Family support, it is well known, is essential to a successful recovery. But the costs of traveling to visit a family member in a military hospital can be expensive. 

The "Hero Miles" program, started in 2003, tries to ease this financial burden by allowing individuals to donate their airline miles
so military families can see their loved ones.

On American Morning, Alina Cho speaks with Fisher House Foundation Chairman and CEO Kenneth Fisher, which administers the program, to discuss how you can help this extraordinary program.
