Last year, nearly 1,400 women reported being assaulted and raped by their fellow soldiers - in some cases by their commanding officers. The shocking phenomenon has a label: military sexual trauma. NOW returns to the subject for an updated report and talks to women who've been victimized while serving in the military. Idaho's First Lady Lori Otter and Meridian Mayor Tammy de Weerd are interviewed on NOW ON PBS, a weekly video newsmagazine that airs on Idaho Public Television. In August 2007, NOW ON PBS reported on a unique drug-prevention program that has been having great success in a neighboring state. The Montana Meth Project targets 12- to 17-year-olds with hard-hitting ads and billboards, using the tag line "Not Even Once" to warn them of the dangers of methamphetamines. Since the project's inception in 2005, teen meth use in Montana has declined 45%, adult meth use has declined 72% and meth-related crime has declined 62% in the state. The project has expanded to Illinois, Wyoming, Arizona and Idaho. The NOW ON PBS team visited Idaho to see how the program is being received here. During one segment of the show, they meet with First Lady Lori Otter, who has made fighting the use of methamphetamines a core issue. They also interview Mayor Tammy de Weerd of Meridian, who has seen first-hand how meth addiction can affect a family: her oldest daughter was addicted to the drug. 5/23/2008 - Idaho Meth Project Highlighted on National PBS NOW Program
