Tex Nolan photo
Tex Nolan is a private military contractor who the crew of the USS Nathan James met at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. After working with him to diffuse an enemy threat at the base, Commander Tom Chandler invited him to join them on their mission to create a vaccine for the virus.

Not much is known about Tex's early life. It was revealed in Trials that Tex had a girlfriend prior to the events of The Last Ship.

It is unknown when or how long Tex was a Private Military Contractor. However, during his career, Tex was stationed as a guard in Guantanamo Bay and would subsequently meet the crew of the Nathan James.

The crew first meet Tex at Guantanamo Bay. He is held at gunpoint and warns Commander Chandler of Al-Qaeda terrorists making their way to the USS Nathan James. He is released and explains Chandler the situation in the base. Later, he assists the team raid the Warehouse and is yet again, held at gunpoint by the Al-Qaeda leader. Chandler managed to kill the leader and Tex is taken to the Nathan James. He joins the crew on their quest to find a cure. (Welcome to Gitmo)

Tex is initially skeptical in regards to the idea of having human trails and people volunteering for it. However, Tex then decides to volunteer himself. Tex is injected with the virus, followed by the vaccine and is then quarantined with the other six volunteers. After some amount of time, Tex along with the rest, experience side effects from the early stages of the virus. After the volunteers start to die, Dr. Scott manages to create a cure to the virus and administers it to them. (Trials)

Tex accompanies the team heading to the port. He greets the State Troopers that arrive and is brought to Amy Granderson's headquarters. Afterwards, he tells Dr. Scott that he was leaving saying "He's moving on." and shares his first kiss with her. Later, he roams the streets of Baltimore, leaving the crew. (No Place Like Home)
