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

Trivia

Charles Durning's character portrays a Medal Of Honor recipient. In real life, Durning was awarded three Purple Hearts in WWII for injuries received. In addition to the Purple Hearts, Durning was awarded the Silver and Bronze Stars for valor and the World War II Victory Medal. In 2008 the French consul presented him with the National Order of the Legion of Honor. See more »

Goofs

When Lt. Coleman and the MPs arrive to arrest Corporal Yost, DiNozzo pulls back his tie to display the Medal of Honor hanging from his chest. All three stand at attention but only the MPs salute, Coleman does not. By tradition the Medal of Honor is saluted by all personnel unless the military person is without cover (that is bare-headed), as Coleman is. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

Great episode. Great contribution by a real Veteran.
3 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this episode for the first time. Great episode made all the more important by the performance of Charles Durning- D-Day vet, Malmedy vet, Silver Star, Bronze Star.

NCIS helped give us a bit of education, also, as to the particulars of the attack. This is the first episode I've seen that reflected a bit of history and the costs of those historical battles.

This episode is all the more poignant with Mr. Durning's recent death this past Christmas Eve. (Congrats also to IMDb for the timely update.)

R.I.P. Greatest Generation. "Thank You for your Service" to all past and present Service members.
