Advantages-
Contacts- other veterans in their civilian life, willing to help out an old trench-buddy
Social Regard- did veterans gain much respect on their return? Wouldn't officers retain their rank as a title in civilian life? Or is that just a British thing?
Independent Income- is there a veterans' pension? (Oops, already mentioned.)
Combat Reflexes- obviously
Fearlessness- at a reasonable +1 or +2: "After what I've seen..."

A white Catholic would be more likely in a large city like Dallas, Austin, etc. Not so much in the countryside. Would one be sheriff in the 1920s? That's a bit more of a stretch, but stranger things have happened. How about a Ranger or U.S. Marshall?

And whether sheriffs are elected or just appointed or even hired depends upon the municipality- they all have different rules. But as a rule of thumb, yes, quite a large proportion of rural southern sheriffs are elected.

I'd probably make 2 or 3 lenses, depending on how long you'd been in the service and how much action you'd seen. Plenty of rear-areas types would have had less trauma and less of a learning experience.

The possible skills should include First Aid.

Some of the counties in Texas are almost exclusively catholic.

But they're Hispanic, aren't they? (Sorry- I probably used 'white' as a colloquialism rather than with any rigor. But we are talking about the 1920s, here.)

If not, well, I'm showing my ignorance of all things Texan. I thought Texas was a bastion of Baptist good ol' boys.
