You here to pay your respects, too?”
Background[edit | edit source]
An enlisted soldier in the ranks of the New California Republic Army, normally stationed at Camp McCarran, Private Kowalski has recently received leave and plans to head home to see his family in California with a caravan, going through the 188 trading post. During a layover at the post, he decided to make his way over to Boulder City, to pay his respects to his brother at the war memorial. Donald Kowalski sacrificed himself so that the rest of the unit could evacuate some of the wounded during the terminal stages of the First Battle of Hoover Dam.

Notable quotes[edit | edit source]

- "What the fuck are you doing? My brother died at the Battle of Hoover Dam. You're desecrating a war memorial.

Appearances[edit | edit source]
Kowalski appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- The Courier: "What is this memorial?"
Kowalski: "It commemorates the Battle of Hoover Dam. The rangers lured the best of Caesar's Legion into Boulder City, then blew the whole town up. The NCR still lost a bunch of troops in the fighting, though. My older brother sacrificed himself so they could evacuate some of the wounded."
- The Courier: "Where are you normally stationed?"
Kowalski: "Camp McCarran, but I'm on leave at the moment - heading back to California to see my folks. I'm supposed to join up with a caravan that's heading that way up at the 188, but they're not due to arrive for awhile yet."
