Even the smallest survival kit, if properly prepared, is invaluable when faced with a survival problem. Before making your survival kit, however, consider your unit's mission, the operational environment, and the equipment and vehicles assigned to your unit.

The environment is the key to the types of items you will need in your survival kit. How much equipment you put in your kit depends on how you will carry the kit. A kit carried on your body will have to be smaller than one carried in a vehicle. Always layer your survival kit, keeping the most important items on your body. For example, your map and compass should always be on your body. Carry less important items on your load-bearing equipment. Place bulky items in the rucksack.

In preparing your survival kit, select items you can use for more than one purpose. If you have two items that will serve the same function, pick the one you can use for another function. Do not over pack items, as this increases your kit's size and weight.

Your survival kit doesn't need to be elaborate. You need only functional items that will meet your needs and a case to hold the items.
The kit's casing needs to be,
Water repellent or waterproof.
Easy to carry or attach to your body.
Suitable and more importantly durable.

In your survival kit, you should have--

First aid items.
Water purification tablets or drops.
Fire starting equipment.
Signaling items.
Food procurement items.

Lighter, metal match, waterproof matches.
Snare wire.
Signaling mirror.
Wrist compass.
Fish and snare line.
Small hand lens.
Oxytetracycline tablets (diarrhea or infection).
Water purification tablets.
Solar blanket.
Surgical blades.
Butterfly sutures.
Condoms for water storage.
Chap Stick.
Needle and thread.
Include a weapon only if the situation so dictates. Consider your unit's mission and the environment in which your unit will operate. Then prepare your survival.

Never make the mistake of assuming that being in a survival situation will never happen to you.

Survival is not a game, there is no reward challenges, and there is no immunity. Though modern television may lead you to believe otherwise.
How do you think you would do in a survival situation?
Could you build a shelter?
Could you light a fire without matches?
Could you forage for food and purify water?

In an emergency you may not be so lucky as to have luxury items such as tarps and matches and camping supplies.
In a real life emergancy you may not have any tools at all aside from your knowledge of survival techniques and your own two hands.

If you found yourself stranded in the wild would you survive?

Don't waist time worrying about the situation that you may face. Natural disaster, lack of expertise while hunting, or even simply tracking wildlife can lead you to a survival show down between you and mother nature.
Take action and educate yourself and lived ones on survival techniques.

Nature is unforgiving. To survive you have to be ready and prepared to fight if you want to stay alive.
