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 »

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.

Medal of Honor recipients
4 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Someone mistakenly said their is no requirement to salute a Medal of Honor recipient. That's technically true, but practically wrong. The salute is rendered to honor the medal and what it represents along with the person wearing it. In the Marine Corps I can testify to the salute being one of the most respected traditions we have. I witnessed a bird colonel salute a gunny who was wearing the ribbon on his summer service charlie. The technical adviser for NCIS the first few seasons was dead on his advice and Mark Harmon played a former Gunny almost perfectly. I wish they still had the TA because recent episodes have deteriorated considerably. That said...Code of Silence with the great actor and American hero Charles Durning is the best episode ever made. As a former Marine I never cry, but the performances in this episode certainly produced some sweat around the eyes. Semper Fi.
