A military spouse recently asked me, "When is it okay to make a welcome home banner or sign?" My answer went something like this, "If your command is having an official homecoming then by all means show your appreciation, support and love by creating a homecoming sign and taking it with you to the pier!" I added, ask your FRG leader in advance if you can bring a banner as well. Sometimes you can't always hang this up on a railing, tent or building, but you can hold each end with your child or fellow family member!

Supplies and How-To
This is a great project to work on with your children. You can also get together with your milspouse girlfriends and work on your banners together.
Another option for creating a homecoming banner is to have a vinyl sign printed by a printing company. The company Build-A-Sign provides free homecoming signs to military families; you only have to a pay a small fee for shipping and handling. Through their website, you can customize the sign with your personal message and even upload a photo.
