After being released from the Cryo Pods during A Rude Awakening, General Ward will be in his office within Vault 111 using his terminal up until Grounded Bird is completed, at which point he will travel to the Vertibird Facility and wait in the atrium.
After traveling to The Oil Rig during The Welcome Party he will become a temporary player companion until they reach the War Room, at which point he will wait there until the player returns from the Underground Facility. Upon the player's return he will escort them to the Oil Rig's Comms Room.
During Humanity Must Shape Their Tools he will linger around The Oil Rig's landing pads until the player completes it, at which point the Oil Rig will be operational and his normal daily schedule will begin.
He wakes up at 7am and immediately heads for his office on Level A, where he'll work for two hours. At 9am he'll head down to the Mess Hall and have breakfast for one hour before doing his daily rounds.
At 10am he'll head outside and inspect the troops until 1pm, at which point he will tour the Labs for an hour and then return to his office at 2pm for a two hour break. At 4pm he will head to the War Room and remain there until 7pm at which point he will once more head to the Mess Hall for a two-hour dinner.
After finishing up in the Mess Hall, he'll go back to his office at 9pm for another hour before doing one final trip to the War Room at 10, and at 11 finally retire to his room.
