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

Charles Durning was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Ernie Yost. A retired WWII Corporal that was a medal of honor recipient surrendering himself to NCIS for a murder he claimed to commit in WWII. See more »


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 »


[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.

Very good episode. A well told story. It has the NCIS conversations and things that I don't adore and I would have deleted some scenes. It's a shame that I saw the episode after Charles Durning died. I wanted to contact him. Now I'm going to finish the 10 lines required for this review. I am not an expert, but those performances were very good to me, especially the one from Charles. I haven't seen many NCIS episodes and so far this is one of the best ones. I liked that it solved something about many years ago. Weaker things like the plot, didn't even begin the ruin the quality of the episode. Stop reading this, go and watch it.
