Deputy Sheriff Banks,
On today, the 30th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you with the U.S. Army as a Military Policeman. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
