Trista_NavyIn 1998, Trista Matascastillo was in the Navy, when she was sexually assaulted by someone she had served with.

Trista told no one about the attack. She had a son as a result and raised him by herself.

Five years later, she met her husband, Army 1st Sergeant Hector Matascastillo. They recently talked about what Trista lived through.

Originally aired November 1, 2014, on NPR’s Weekend Edition.
