Army Specialist Eric Orr returned from a nine month tour in Afghanistan and was surprised by about 20 supporters.

Among them were veterans and his grandmother and great-grandmother.

The homecoming was organized by Operation Thank You.

Eric says he was only expecting a few family members and never imagined receiving a hero's welcome.

He will spend the next three weeks visiting family throughout Washington state before he heads back to his base at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
