Hello again, Advocate readers. It's time for another editorial board meeting this Wednesday and we'd like to hear what you think is worthy of an opinion piece from the Advocate. We will be talking about current events from the previous week. There is a list below of some of the topics we plan to discuss.

Topics list:

Vietnam vets invited to welcome home ceremony at Fort Hood: Vietnam War veterans will receive a special welcome home during Phantom Warriors Week at Fort Hood later this month.

In addition to our normal meeting, we will have a debate immediately after with Sheriff T. Michael O'Connor and Scott Hornstein, who are running for the Republican nomination for Victoria County Sheriff in the May 29 primary. We will be taking questions from readers in the chat box during the debate, or you can post your questions here ahead of time. We look forward to seeing you there.
