If your husband is/was in the military...

is he able to fix just about anything with anything he can find around the house to fix it with?
My ol man is ex-Navy and we call him McGyver...sometimes he just amazes me with the stuff he comes up for repairs.

  • well dh has never been in the service but he does that too. he didnt have some wrench to take the oil filter off the lawn mower and he did it himself. a few days later i was like --- honeywhere is my belt... (he ruined it in the process) so my dh isnt really a genius- just too cheap to pay for anything he can fix.

  • My husband and I were both in the Navy. And yes, he can pretty much fix anything. Though, he is an engineer now.

  • I was navy for 12 years, and he's still active. He's a corpsman so any fixing he does is on anyone who gets hurt, including guinea pigs. I'm the one who changed out the oven ignitor last week by myself. He wanted to call a repairman.

  • My hubby hasn't served but he's very handy...with lots of things, yes even household things...LOL! No but really my husband knows alot about cars and just random things I know nothing about so even though it hurts I have to be impressed with what he knows.

  • My husband is Army, and he sucks at fixing things. Except computers. He is good at that.
