If you’re a fan of Mike Roger’s show, “Something to think about,” you know how provocative these one-minute segments can be. Be sure to tune in Wednesday to hear a segment about On Point.
September is Suicide Prevention Month.
She hasn’t talked about it much, except with close Marine Corps friends. But in the preface of On Point, Tracy reveals the darker motivation that compelled her to develop a writing guide for veterans and their families: the violent suicide of a Marine friend who had been a Beirut veteran.
The details of her friend’s suicide are too disturbing, even today, to discuss publicly, and she wouldn’t out of respect for her friend’s family. But in a piece she wrote for the blog of award-winning novelist, Kathleen M. Rodgers, Tracy explains how the Marine’s suicide rattled her into action.

Amazon reportedly takes stock of On Point this week and begins shipping Wednesday — two weeks ahead of schedule.
