Tisha Thompson, Investigative Reporter, NBC 4 Investigative Team

The U.S. Postal Service is never more in demand than now, the year-end holiday season. But Postal employees face more than a heavy workload. Year-round, they're dealing with the threat of assaults as they make their rounds, sometimes in the dark. Then there's this: Postal Service employees who have faced sexually assault by their coworkers. In a new report by the NBC News-4 Investigative Team, two Postal workers told investigative reporter Tisha Thompson what they said happened to them and the retaliation they faced after speaking out. She joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss her investigation.

Alcohol key in military fight against sexual assault

The Pentagon has released its annual report on sexual assault. The report, which includes a multi-faceted strategy to prevent sexual assault, indicates that alcohol often plays a significant role in the commission of sexual assault. The report says alcohol impairs one's ability to identify a sexual assault threat and is sometimes used as a tool to reduce the victim's resistance or totally incapacitate a victim. The strategy against sexual assault includes five elements: prevention, investigation, accountability, advocacy and assessment of the program.
