Here's what's coming up on Good Morning East Texas: Families at Ft. Hood are welcoming home hundreds of soldiers who have spent the past year in Iraq, even as the base deals with the devastating tragedy of last week's deadly shooting. President Obama visited the post for a somber memorial for those killed last week.
Today is Veteran's Day, and several East Texas towns will hold special ceremonies to honor the service of the men and women in our nation's military.
Plus, an East Texas school district will be hiring its own police officers to improve security on school grounds. Officials in the Hallsville ISD hope to have four more officers on patrol by January.
And there is new research out on the possible health benefits of something that may be in your refrigerator right now. Scientists are looking into the positive effects of drinking chocolate milk.
A cold front moved through late yesterday but thanks to limited moisture, the only way of knowing was a slight wind shift. We will continue to see high temperatures at or above normal during the afternoon hours but with the drier air mass, temperatures at night will get closer to seasonal levels. Highs today will reach the 70s area wide again.
