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

Major, a man in your unit was murdered! Is there a reason you don't want to know who did it?
Marine Major Ike Varnai
Sure I do. I'd also like the war to end, the electricity to work, and for all the tribes to get along.
