Yolanda Mayo was in the Marines for three decades. When she deployed to Afghanistan, her husband sent her a stuffed bunny for Easter. It became her son’s first toy then her daughter’s. A decade later Yolanda was called back into active duty, and her children insisted she take the bunny on her deployment to Iraq. For Yolanda and her family, the bunny represents freedom and home.
