Storyline

A Marine corporal from WW2, Ernie Yost, who is a new widower and a recipient of the Medal of Honor, voluntarily enters the headquarters of the NCIS, where he happens to meet Gibbs, to whom he confesses having murdered a fellow Marine. Gibbs and the gang investigate, but at first they do not buy the confession or understand it. The SecNav shows interest, for Yost has written to him. LCdr. Faith Coleman, of the JAG Corps, demands to arrest Yost and charge him; however, the NCIS bunch have other plans for him. The team put the pieces together, and both Kate and Faith shed a few tears. A Japanese former soldier lends a hand and serves a meal. Gibbs, a former gunny, takes Yost to dinner. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

When McGee tells about Bellows, he says Bellows was at Vegas and had two aces, then doubled down and pulled two queens. When you double down, you only get one more card. McGee should have said Bellows split the aces. See more »

Quotes

Henry: Gibbs.
Gibbs: Hey, morning, Henry!
Henry: That sushi place you sent me to...
Gibbs: What, you didn't like it?
Henry: I liked it fine, only you didn't tell me I had to speak Japanese to order.
Gibbs: You don't order; you eat what you're served, with a smile. Just like being married.

The best
10 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely the best segment in ten years of NCIS programming.

Watching Charles Durning interact with the regular NCIS cast in a most unusual story line is so moving that, even knowing the story--in detail now after all these years of watching my DVD set--I still have to ready myself to watch "Call of Silence" every time I start up the DVD player.

Durning was nominated for an Emmy for his role in this segment of NCIS and, though I have never researched the question, it would not surprise me at all to find that he was awarded numerous awards, some from non-film cultural groups, for his role and the great heart he put into it.

Deeply moving, and magnificent. 10 out of 10.
