Happy Memorial Day, THGers.

In honor of this special holiday, we previously posted a gallery of 19 Celebrities Who Served in the Military - and we salute those real-life men and women.

But television sometimes salutes members of the armed forces in its own way, as a number of characters across the TV dial are former Navy SEALS, army snipers and/or ex-helicopter pilots.

A few are also vampires. 

From True Blood to The Vampire Diaries, NCIS to The Simpsons, we honor these fictional fighters in the following slideshow. Thank you for your pretend service, people... 

Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)
Damon Salvatore sure knows how to wear a uniform, doesn't he? The character served his country in multiple wars. We thank him for his service.

Tuesday's NCIS Season 11 Episode 11 was all about faith, and keeping it alive.

Circumstances didn't make that easy at work, as a potential bioterror attack struck military families and perplexed the team, or on a personal note for Vance.

The director didn't trust the motives of his father-in-law (guest star Ben Vereen) and the parents of sick children plagued by a mystery ailment were fearful.

Eventually, with all hands on deck, the team cracked the case and terrorism fears were put to rest, as was Vance's bad blood with Lamar in a wonderful scene.

Elsewhere, we learned more about Bishop, both in that she's married and that she feels incredible guilt regarding certain matters. What were they?

NCIS Season 11 Episode 10 offered plenty of laughter and lighter moments.

It also offered major awkwardness, and likely nightmares for people with phobias of clowns, and/or seeing Tobias Fornell in his underwear, about to get it on.

Yes, the aptly-titled "Devil's Triad" was that kind of episode as Gibbs, Fornell and Diane took center stage once again with their most unusual relationship.

She and Tobias are hooking up again, much to the dismay of their teen daughter, who not only ended up in danger as part of the case, but helped NCIS get their man.

Ellie Bishop also proved her worth in her first episode as part of the team. What else went down? And how does Gibbs feel about Diane and Tobias' reconciliation?

NCIS introduced us to Ziva's replacement on last night's episode, but Emily Wickersham's Eleanor "Ellie" Bishop is nothing like the woman whose spot she's filling.

As Bishop's debut, NCIS Season 11 Episode 9 served as both a terrific welcome for this new member of Gibbs' team, and a solid installment on its own merit.

After the Navy Secretary was bugged, Gibbs & Co. learned that Bishop, an NSA Analyst, had predicted this same threat years ago. She joined the investigation.

Throughout the case, she proved her worth - even if it required a "Gut Check" or two. What did you think of the episode? Did you miss it? Want to see it again?

Emily Wickersham is joining the cast of NCIS as a series regular starting November 19, when she debuts as Ziva's successor, Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop.

The actress was originally slated to appear in three episodes, with the possibility of being upped to regular status as a full-time replacement for Cote de Pablo.

Producers confirmed today, however, that Wickersham was promoted to NCIS series regular - even before her new character has even been introduced.

"[Emily Wickersham] is proving to perfectly compliment the NCIS team,” said show-runner Gary Glasberg. ”Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious."

"Great things are planned for Bishop and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her,” he added, noting that his intention was never to "replace" Ziva David.

While she will undoubtedly be considered Ziva's successor because of the circumstances, she will be developed into a notable character in her own right.

He and Jankovic, an internist, announced the pregnancy in April. The couple, who tied the knot in 2009, are already parents to daughter Olivia, 18 months.

Weatherly is also dad to son August, 17, from his first marriage to Amelia Heinle.

“Beautiful Bojana gave birth to 10 lb. Liam today, the most important day of the week,” he announced, light-heartedly plugging the birth and his show.

And yes, Liam impressively tipped the scales at double digits. Way to go, mom!

Tuesday, on the second episode of NCIS Season 11, Cote de Pablo's Ziva David made her final appearance in a complex and emotional installment.

After a months-long journey, Tony tracked down his longtime love in Israel, only to have her say she needed to leave the team to find herself again.

“I have to do this alone,” Ziva explained to her colleague of so many years. “I have to let go of everything, or I will be pulled back to where I started.”

Cote de Pablo's exit threw the show for a loop this summer, as NCIS had to wrap up last season's cliffhanger in an entirely new way to write Ziva out.

As a result, her departure didn't offer much closure, though that was possibly deliberate. Ziva's goodbye was as open-ended and positive as they come.

Remaining in Israel to find herself? Not entirely satisfying, especially for Tony. But also hard to fault the character for after the events of last season.

NCIS returned for its 11th season Tuesday night with the first half of a two-episode farewell arc for Cote de Pablo's Ziva David. The most interesting part?

Ziva did not appear in the episode.

We saw her do a little bit of texting and instant messaging, from Tony's perspective, but there was no sign of the missing agent throughout the premiere.

We began four months from where we saw Gibbs had Fornell in his sniper rifle's crosshairs at the end of Season 10, to the start of the secret mission.

Immediately, the Secretary of the Navy dies in an explosion at a gala. This changes Parsons' perspective on the man he has been trying to put away.

Gibbs, following a lead to Iran, is nearly ambushed in the street, only to be rescued by Parsons and to realize he was being set up. But by whom?

Breaking Bayou news out of CBS:

The network has announced that it will air a two-part NCIS episode this spring that serves as a backdoor pilot to another spinoff of the successful series, this one to be set in New Orleans.

Mark Harmon as Gibbs

If picked up, the new series would then be a part of the CBS 2014-2015 schedule and produced by Gary Glasberg and Mark Harmon. It would chronicle cases from Pensacola through Mississippi, Louisiana to the Texas panhandle.

NCIS, of course, was spunoff from JAG, and it then led to the creation of NCIS: Los Angeles, which is the second highest-rated show on television.

NCIS Season 11, meanwhile, kicks off tonight. Watch a preview below:
