Storyline

A captain in the Marine Corps Reserve dies in the explosion of a single mortar round in the green international zone in central Baghdad; by order of the SecNav the body reaches Ducky, who says that the shrapnel did not kill the officer, but a bullet did. The reservist had achieved much financial success by age 30; his trophy widow shows up in the squad bay, and she provides information. Tony and Jardine investigate in Baghdad; Gibbs, McGee, and Ziva continue to investigate in Washington. Cooperation and coordination across 10 time zones produce a solution of the puzzle; Gibbs and McGee then form a welcoming committee and crash a meeting at the Dulles Airport. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

During one interview an enlisted Marine says that he and his fellows "hit the ground", whereas in the real world of the real US Marine Corps, as in the US Navy, the standard vernacular term is to "hit the deck", even if the deck does happen to be the ground. See more »
