Shane Phillips keeps two shadow boxes on his mantel to remind him of all the good memories from his time in the Army and law enforcement.

One is filled with badges from the Harker Heights and Round Rock police departments. The other contains his name tape and ribbons from his Army uniform, a piece of shrapnel from an attack and a bracelet he and one of his now deceased buddies made together by tying cobra knots. He remembers eating popcorn and drinking a lot of Orange Crush.
