GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

There are many ways to welcome a loved one home after they have been gone for months, or even years, serving overseas to protect our country.

Quentin Eastridge got his unique welcome home Saturday afternoon with a singing flash mob at the Pet Smart in Gulfport.

Eastridge is a sailor, and has spent the last 13 months in Bahrain. From the look on his face, he was clueless as to what was going on, but as the singing group got bigger, he thought the welcome home surprise was a cool idea.

His wife, Jessica, is happy to have her sailor back home.

The Eastridge family currently lives on the Seabee base in Gulfport but say they look forward to starting a new life in Virginia Beach, VA, very soon.
