Pictures and numbers tell the real story
Underlying much of the criticism of our time at the helm of the Wounded Warrior Project is a notion that other veterans charities perform better. This is simply not accurate.
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.
