* InformedAttribute: Zig-zagged. One of the loading screen messages states that the NCR typically punishes crimes with death; however, as shown with the Powder Gangers, they a fully-functioning correctional facility prior to the Courier's arrival and re-arrest the escaped Powder Gangers in a certain ending instead of killing them. They'll still send hit squads after you if you get on their bad side, though (albeit with a three-day grace period).

[[folder: Ranger Milo]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Emerson Brooks

->''"The troopers won't go down into the camp with their comrades at risk. Dirty game the Legion likes to roll out whenever they get a chance. Problem is, Ranger {my-low} Milo doesn't want to play."''

Milo is a NCR Ranger hanging around a bunch of troopers who escaped Nelson and is currently acting as a guard to discourage people from entering the war zone. When the Courier meets him, Ranger Milo will inform you that the NCR is hesitant to take back the town, while The Legion has NCR troops crucified, but still alive in town, that could be killed if they launch a counter-attack to retake the town, but he has a plan... to MercyKill the troops so The Legion can't use them as shield and requests your aid in this plan.
----
* ElitesAreMoreGlamorous: Seems to hold this view.
* JerkAssHasAPoint: Milo's methods for dealing with the hostage crisis in Nelson are... a bit unscrupulous, but he knows doing nothing will just draw out the prisoners suffering and as long The Legion has them prisoner, the men around him will hesitate to take back the town, in fear of getting them killed.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Ranger Milo seems to think less of the rank and file troopers and is willing to kill the NCR prisoners, so The Legion can't use them discourage NCR retaliation, but if you ''do'' manage rescue the hostages, he will commend you for your heroism.
* ICallItVera: He calls his rifle "Carmine", though it's just a regular Cowboy Repeater and not a unique version, like Benny's pistol "Maria".
* MercyKill: His plan on how to deal with the NCR prisoners, the Legion stuck on crosses in Nelson.

* BonusBoss: He is an encounter accessible only if you choose a certain option at the end of the Lonesome Road DLC, and has near-perfect combat stats along with powerful gear.
* ColonelBadass: He's one of only ''four'' characters in the entire series, that has a ten on ''every'' S.P.E.C.I.A.L stat [[note]] The others being Frank Horrigan, Gaius Magnus, and Ulysses[[/note]] and has a hundred in energy weapons, explosives, guns, and explosives, as well as his own unique suit of power armor. Said armor also boosts his already prodigious strength to 11.

A veteran of the First Battle of Hoover Dam, this nameless merchant originally served in Third Platoon of Bravo Company as a Staff Sergeant in the NCR Army. Following her rather direct refusal to flog two "deserters" (young soldiers who got drunk on the Strip and missed roll call) she was discharged from the military for insubordination. Despite this, she remains fiercely loyal to the NCR and continues to work for it as a freelance arms merchant.

Starting her business up was a relatively simple task: gather a few veterans, bribe a Gun Runner to get some stock and establish a network of merchants selling weapons and ammunition to NCR sympathizers at bargain prices, a small, but powerful contribution to the war against Caesar's Legion.

The merchant herself picked the 188 trading post to set up shop, dealing out of the back of an old army truck. Apart from being the local hub of commerce and trade, she gets to see her old unit occasionally, ensure their commander's treating them fairly and slip the young troopers a magazine or two to keep them armed.

NCR captain and commander of the refugee camp at Bitter Springs in 2281, she is in charge of managing the growing influx of people running from the settlements being razed by Caesar's Legion. Her story with Bitter Springs however goes a lot further than just being stationed there. [[spoiler: In 2278, Captain Gilles was the commanding officer of the [=NCR=]'s First Recon Snipers. Following sketchy radio intel, Major Gilles ordered the snipers on Coyote Tail Ridge to shoot at anyone escaping until they ran out of ammo. When the [=NCR=] flushed out the Great Kahns, First Recon and fellow snipers opened fire onto women, children, elderly, and wounded Khans fleeing the area. Shocked at the sight, Gilles froze up. Then-Captain Dhatri salvaged what little he could of the situation and was promoted to Major and leader of First Recon. Gilles was demoted to Captain and stationed at Bitter Springs where she is still in command today.]]

** Compared to the Legion counterpart, the NCR troopers in general are poorly trained. But this is balanced out by their equipment; they have better armor and all of them have guns thanks to the Gun Runners, who supplied the military as well as selling personal weapons to the soldiers. This gets especially noticeable if you piss the NCR off: getting within line of sight of a group of hostile NCR troops will result in [[MoreDakka a hell of a lot of incoming bullets]].

Added DiffLines:

* BoringButPractical: Every NCR soldier, even the lowliest one, receives basic combat training and has standard armor, a service rifle, and some grenades. Their armor (DT of 12) is not great but still capable of stopping most pistol rounds (including the ever-common 9x19mm) and buckshot, their grenades always come in handy, and their rifles are unremarkable but still reliable and accurate semi-automatic weapons firing the high-velocity 5.56x45mm round. As a result, at equal numbers NCR troops tend to slaughter foes like Great Khans, Powder Gangers, Recruit Legionaries, and Kings- all of whom are primarily equipped with short-ranged pistols, pistol-caliber submachine guns, shotguns, and the occasional melee weapons, which are all not only outranged by NCR rifles but also incapable of reliably penetrating NCR armor.

* HateSink: From the moment she's introduced when doing the main storyline missions for the NCR, she really comes across being extremely abrasive when first talking to her and most players would probably rather take the independent or Mr.House route. See JerkAss

Daniel Contreras is part of the Army Supply Corps and was promoted to sergeant and assigned as Camp [=McCarran=]'s quartermaster. He administrates the supply depot out of a makeshift shack erected by the [=McCarran=] Concourse. Though innovative and skilled at acquiring the substantial amounts of weapons, ammunition, food and equipment that the garrison at Camp [=McCarran=] needs, Contreras is not entirely faithful to NCR, as he uses his position for personal gain, trafficking guns and chems to third parties. Contreras also has his own quest-line, where he will send the player on some errands that benefit his business. After doing so, he will reward the player with This Machine, and access to an expanded inventory.
