When we got back, after my Sergeant had me sign a counseling statement, I talked with the junior mechanics who showed me a black button behind the driver's side of the cabin. Push it three times, prime the pump, and start your engine. I try to make sure that other Soldiers know that, but when I try to tell them, my current Sergeant shouts "This is not story time!"

Yet I am told that I need to share my experience...
