Restoring Hope

Head to Camp Forlorn Hope to begin with. Enter the Command Center and speak with Major Polatli and inquire as to what he needs your help for. Basically, he needs to get his Camp back into functioning order to take back Nelson from the Legion. Check the southeast corner to find a [BIG BOOK OF SCIENCE] then head out of the tent. Head south and talk with Quartermaster Mayes telling him that the Major sent you. He suggests talking to the folks at HELIOS One to find out where the supplies are. At HELIOS One talk with Lt. Haggerty, she mentions the troops stopping by and she put a GPS tracker in the supplies.

Follow the new quest marker to reach the supplies. Just past a pack of Fire Geckos you will find the supplies and remains of the troops. Loot the troops for [NCR DOGTAG x3], [FORLORN HOPE LETTER 1], [FORLORN HOPE LETTER 8] and then the chest for [CAMP FORLORN HOPE SUPPLY SHIPMENT]. Upon taking the supplies you are ambushed by three Legion Recruits. Kill them or flee, either way return to Mayes. Return to Major Polatli who in turn sends you over to Dr. Richards to see if he can use any help.

Head north of the Command Center to find Dr. Richards. Ask him if you can be of any assistance to which he asks if you have medical experience. A 20 in the Medical Skill is enough to pass the check, likewise you can lie. There are three patients that need be healed and a Medicine Skill of 40, 60, and 75 is enough to treat them without any of your own items. You can also treat them if you have any of the items listed to heal them with. Afterwards talk to Dr. Richards then return to Major Polatli. The time has come to make the assault on Nelson, let him know when you are ready.

  Head over to Sergeant Cooper and choose which direction to attack from. Go north if you use close range weapons or east if you prefer to snipe your enemies from a distance. As you make your way through seek out Dead Sea and help him out by removing his [LIBERATOR] from his dead lifeless hands. After the battle you should return to Major Polatli to receive [300 EXPERIENCE POINTS], NCR Fame, and Caesar's Legion Infamy. Don't forget to ask for troops at Camp Bitter Springs before you leave.

The morale bonus isn't accurate, return to sender doesn't count towards it and only about 6-8 morale is required for combat/veteran rangers to assault Nelson

I have the same problem, I searched all of Nelson, all the buildings, all around Nelson and killed any Legionnairies... The NCR Troopers huddle around the camp fire and I can't turn the quest in.

I would have to agree with the first poster. I can't seem to figure out why the NCR guys are huddle glitched up near the campfire.... and I too am unable to turn in the quest.

I made the mistake of setting the helios plant to wipe out the ncr troops outside. Now after restoring my rating with ncr to smiling troublemaker I have attempted the quest restoring hope. I follow the marker to helios one where there are now legionnaries. After killing them I cant do any more of the quest. Is this quest going to remain open for the rest of the game or can it be completed ? And if so - how ?

Was wondering if anybody else has had a glitch maybe of Sgt. Cooper being MIA and not being able to find him. Did the mission for taking back nelson before starting the Restoring hope mission and thought that all I had to do in nelson the first time was rescue the NCR Troopers on the poles but didn't know Dead Sea was in the Barracks. So later in the game started restoring hope and finished (Or thought I finished it) then went to turn it in and Major Polati started talking about taking back Nelson and FINALLY killed Dead Sea but no sign of Cooper and there is about 12 NCR Troopers in a huddle looks like beside the camp fire in Nelson that just runs at each other and in a huddle and lags up my game and still cannot turn in the Restoring Hope mission. So where's Sgt. Cooper?
