CHICAGO (AP) - Michelle Obama says whenever she’s feeling bad or sorry for herself she thinks of America’s military families.

Obama is to appear on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on Thursday. In quotes provided Wednesday by Harpo Productions, Obama says “I suck it up because of these families.” The first lady says she’s impressed by the strength, pride and courage of military families. She says their “willingness to sacrifice without complaint” moves her.

The episode of Winfrey’s Chicago-based talk show also includes journalists Tom Brokaw and Bob Woodward as they and Obama share the stories of American military families.

Obama says she also finds military families resilient. She says it’s hard to get their message out because “they never ask for help.”
