SYLVANIA (WTOL) - He's been halfway around the world in harm's way, but this 19-year old gets to come home on the eve of Thanksgiving.

As if that wasn't enough, PFC Jacob Cready got a surprise from the whole neighborhood upon his return.

Neighbors, friends and loved ones lined Glasgow St. with signs welcoming him home and thanking him for his service. They say a flyer circulated the family's street announcing when Jacob was returning.

"I never expected anything like this," Cready told News 11, "I was just excited to see my family."
