Oi, doc, do not think so negatively...

You will find some shelter - soon-ish...

...and we will need to get TeeDee and Ada back XD

Kind of hard to NOT be negative, mjkj. Doctor Demark is having the DEFINITION of a bad day.

Gallows humor, a way to cope with a bad situation.

You'd be surprised how common it is among soldiers.

I'd think that standard pocket litter for a NTSR medic on field ops in this world at this time should be at least:

a pocketknife, oh wait, she has dickhead's unless she threw it away;

a pocket aid kit with at least one dose of quik-clot or 'wound-fill' as they call it and a triangular bandage (more likely the Israeli style),

pocket radio, which we've seen

mini-flare kit (good for starting fires too)

water filter straw (they exist now, why not then ?)

a 'space blanket' or the far in the future equivalent (wonder if her pistol will heat up rocks a la Star Trek ?)

looks like she's lost her primary trauma bag and equipment belt and didn't take the 'seat pack' when she jettisoned her chute, assuming there was one, but she still has her sidearm and there must be pockets even in that skinsuit, she did use wound-fill on the knife hole in her arm so maybe there was only one dose ?

I usually have in my pockets at all times a leatherman (with cap crimper ;)) a good pocketknife, a few odds and ends on my keychain (minimaglight, magnesium/ferroceramic rod, multi-part eyeglasses screwdriver/nutdriver), bic lighter even though I quit smoking 20+ years ago, coin holder, phone, a roll of dental floss in my wallet (as strong than paracord and a LOT less bulky especially when it's out of the container.) and some other odds and ends I never have to worry about shifting individually from one set of clothes to another.

I'd think her skinsuit should be as well equipped as a current set of web gear and most things would be miniaturised even more than they are now. Water would be then as now, the bulkiest thing to carry. I keep a jug and a few bottles in the car but rarely carry any unless I'm going into the woods, then I have my old military webbing with a bunch of useful things in it that are more suited for survival than combat :)
