Radio talk show host "Dr. Laura" Schlessinger says she's tired of all the complaints she hears from military wives.
She says those wives "aren't dodging bullets" so she doesn't want to hear any whining.
Schlessinger's remarks came Friday during her visit to Utah. The talk show host broadcast her daily national radio program from the Fort Douglas theater here.
Popularly known as just "Dr. Laura," Schlessinger holds a doctorate in physiology and is a former marriage, family and child counselor in California.
Schlessinger's son, Deryk, is in the Army. She says his tour of duty has been extended because of disputes in Congress over war funding.
Schelessinger praised fathers who leave their families to serve in the military. But she declined to offer similar praise for the military's serving mothers.
