Jocelyn said she made friends with some of the other wives whose husbands deployed with Mike, and they have been prepping for their return all week.

On Thursday, the other wives sent Jocelyn photos of the elaborate "welcome home" signs they had made for their soldiers. However, Jocelyn wasn't feeling it.

"I really didn’t feel like making a sign and my husband said he didn’t really want a sign," she said.

So, she decided to do something a little different. This is how she welcome Mike home, in comparison to her friends.

Jocelyn said her friends loved her makeshift sign, and so did her husband.

"My husband loved it," she said. "He said he saw it when he was walking out of the terminal and one of the other soldiers said, 'Oh you guys got signs,' and my husband said, 'Yeah...I think mine says ‘oh hey.' He thought it was hilarious."

Jocelyn posted her handiwork to Reddit, where it soon jumped to the front page. People were into her sign.

Many said they thought her sign was the best of all.

"Your sign would get a legitimate laugh out of me," said one poster.

Welcome home, Mike!
