* Make a banner using a white sheet and poster paint saying Welcome Home Daddy, Mommy, etc... If you have kids have them help you paint it. Hang it from the front of your house for the whole world to see (ok maybe not the whole world, but it won't go unnoticed).

*Because there are often large crowds when units retrograde, it's sometimes hard for your returning Marine to find you in the melee. You might try holding small flags of your Marine's favorite sports team, your state or favorite college flag. The last retrograde, we made slogan posters of our middle Marine's "famous" quotes, and congratulations using his childhood nickname. Also, we moms with a twisted sense of humor have been known to make posters of our sons from baby pictures or shots of them while asleep on leave. It's a good idea not to mess with a Marine, but an even better idea not to mess with his Mom.

* Place small flags around your fence or walkway
