Willing to Serve

State Senator Jim Banks of Columbia City will soon be putting his life on the line for his country.

An officer in the U.S. Navy, Banks is getting deployed to Afghanistan for eight months later this week. While it won’t be an easy time for Banks and his family, his wife Amanda is choosing to see opportunity in this season of challenge.

NewsChannel 15’s Mark Mellinger sat down with the couple and has a preview of his special report “Willing to Serve” in the attached video. The story itself will air Thursday evening on NewsChannel 15 at 6.
