McGee drives Gibbs home (because of Gibbs's wounded shoulder), then inside his pad he finds an intruder, one whom he knows, Damon, who tells him about the death of a fellow Marine. Gibbs calls McGee, who returns and picks up Gibbs and Damon, then they find the body (with a slit throat), and McGee calls the Metro PD. Damon tells about the involvement of the victim with a suspicious trucking operation. They pick up Fornell and meet Tony, Ziva, and Ducky at the scene. Gibbs agrees for Damon to infiltrate the trucking firm; Damon and Ziva pose as truckers, and they start a trip; Gibbs and Fornell tail in Gibbs's car, and Tony and McGee try to do so in a van. Along the way the gang put the pieces together. Gibbs and Fornell meet a man who provides answers, then they rendezvous with not only Damon and Ziva but also two of the bad guys. Later, back in the evidence garage, Gibbs and Fornell pinch the third bad guy. Damon heads out to meet the widow. Written by

Fornell, a senior special agent of the FBI, comments that, in a recent case, an interstate commercial truck driver with a gun drew no flak from the cops after a shooting during an attempted hijacking. However, in the real world of commercial trucking, it's well known and thoroughly understood that state laws uniformly forbid truckers and others to carry handguns across state lines, even if a particular weapon is properly registered in one state. Doing so is a felony. State authorities vigorously prosecute such cases and heavily penalize the violators. A real FBI agent, even a rookie, would know that well. See more
Wife and kid left him. He had some... trouble making the transition back to civilian.

I didn't carry him out of the desert so he could wind up dead in some alley tonight!
