Wounded Warrior Project Accused of Wasting Donor Money

This article from Military.com can be accessed by using the link below. It is not ‘new’ news. I have seen their tax returns in the past which documented their exorbitant salaries and lavish parties. One of my main concerns is that they are not using the millions of $ in donations they receive to the benefit of the post 9/11 Veterans they state that they are serving. I am not attempting to diminish the good work they may have done, but I do want to bring to the attention of the public, particularly those who donate to WWP, that the funds may not be being used wisely.

“The charity for wounded veterans, the Wounded Warrior Project, is facing accusations of using donor money toward excessive spending on conferences and parties instead of on recovery programs, according to a CBS News report.

Army Staff Sergeant Erick Millette, who returned from Iraq in 2006 with a bronze star and a purple heart, told CBS News he admired the charity’s work and took a job with the group in 2014 but quit after two years.

“Their mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors, but what the public doesn’t see is how they spend their money,” he told CBS News.”
