Op-ed: The Wounded Truth about The Wound Warrior Project

Our op-ed appeared today in The Washington Examiner

The controversy surrounding the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that provides life-saving services to disabled veterans and their families, is fueled by sloppy, simplistic reporting. Of far greater importance, this "scandal" story is driven by a widespread misunderstanding of how modern charities operate, and the resources they need to scale solutions equal to vast social problems.

About this Blog

This blog was created by Steven Nardizzi, former CEO of Wounded Warrior Project and Al Giordano, former COO. On March 10, 2016, we were fired by the board of the WWP in the wake of media reports about wasteful spending at the charity we had led for eight years. In the same press release announcing our firings, the Board of WWP issued findings of an independent investigation disproving the allegations contained in those media reports. Nevertheless, the media's false reporting has taken hold and and we are forced to defend ourselves and the wonderful organization and people that has done so much help our wounded veterans.
