I am going through all of the side ops in MGSV and on one of the ops eliminating a tank unit Quiet took a lot of fire and was extracted. Now I have no buddies at all available for missions.

How do I get Quiet and/or other buddies back?

A message came up during a side-op after the one where Quiet was extracted saying she had left the sick bay, but several side-ops later and still no buddies.

What do I do?

    Are they missing entirely when you are on the deployment screen? What happens if you try to call one while out in the field?
