Description: Army veteran Marc Raciti’s struggles with PTSD nearly drove him to suicide. Instead of giving in to those impulses, however, Raciti sought help. He also wrote an award-nominated book about his ordeal as a way to help others. Raciti will speak about his book and life journey at Scottsdale’s Veterans Day commemoration. The free program runs from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, 7301 E. Indian Bend Road. The ceremony also features a performance of patriotic music by the 108th Army Band.
