HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- Holiday celebrations are a little different this year due to COVID-19, but even a pandemic couldn't keep the Easter Bunny away from delivering candy and cheer to the children of military families here.

With the help of Airmen volunteers, the 75th Force Support Squadron hosted "Operation Bunny Trail" on April 1, an Easter parade that snaked its way through the installation to deliver treats to children at the installation's Child Development Center and in military family housing.
