Banach is a former Commander of the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. He led the first Airborne Combat Jump Invasion into Afghanistan in 2001, shortly after 9/11. In 2003 he led his Ranger Battalion again for a second combat jump into Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Banach, the older brother of Olympic champions Ed and Lou Banach, placed fifth at the New York state wrestling championships. In college, he wrestled at Clemson University and the University of Iowa. All three Banachs wrestled for coach Dan Gable.
