    Greet upon return

    What is a common AmE expression for greeting someone upon return from a overseas vacation trip? Something like "Hi there, Welcome back"? Welcome Home - appears to be common for military people.

    Re: Greet upon return

    Surely - we welcome people home or welcome them back after a trip of even a few days.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
