|Sergeant Jerzy Nowak, 2nd Polish Marine Division|
| BACKGROUND: Jerzy Nowak is originally from the Gdansk area. He served his National Service time as a conscript in the 2nd Polish Marine Division (in 1990-91). Subsequently, he found work as a fitter in the Gdansk shipyards until his activities as a member of Solidarity caused him to lose his job.
When the war began, he was Chief Mechanics Mate on a small Polish fishing trawler working the Baltic Sea. While he was no supporter of the Polish communist government, patriotism moved him to respond when the government called up reserves in 1996.
When the Polish Free Congress was established in 1997, Nowak deserted and joined a guerilla group operating along the Baltic coast. During the confusion of the nuclear exchange and the NATO withdrawal westward, he fell in with elements of the American army, where he has been ever since.
NOTES FOR REFEREE: Sergeant Jerzy Nowak was conceived as a major NPC who had been attached to the player's unit as a translator and guide before the events of the Escape from Kalisz module.
