Storyline

The Virginia State Police calls the NCIS to a shooting of a Navy petty officer first-class; Gibbs and company find the murder weapon at the scene; Abby traces the piece to a pawnshop in Maryland, then Gibbs and Tony trace it to Kim, a young woman. While at the shop Tony sees a Medal of Honor and asks about it; Leroy Jethro Moore had received it for valor during World War II; Gibbs recognizes the name of his father's former best friend, for whom Jackson had named his son. Kim says that she gave the pistol to Kris, her brother, who says that someone stole it from the trunk of his car, and who later identifies a motorcycle and a rider. The team find the pieces and put them together, then with help from a billionaire and $1M, they find the shooter, to whom the whole gang plus a couple of friends give a good-morning hello. Gibbs helps his father and his old friend to overcome an old difficulty. Meanwhile Abby declines an interesting dinner date. Written by DocRushing

Trivia

Several times during this episode, there are references to "The Congressional Medal of Honor," by DiNozzo, Gibbs, and others. Since DiNozzo and Gibbs are employees of the Department of the Navy, both would know very well that the correct name of the medal is simply "Medal of Honor," and Congressional is not a proper part of the name. The medal is awarded by the President of the United States in the name of Congress. Although the medal is sometimes referred to as the Congressional Medal of Honor, the original and official title is, and always has been, simply "Medal of Honor." See more »

Goofs

Just before Tony and Ziva seek to speak with a college student in his dorm room, an establishment shot shows the facade of a handsome academic structure on an attractive campus; however, large letters carved into stone identify the edifice as not a dormitory but rather a biochemistry building.
