Military Times: Overlooked in the Wounded Warrior Project scandal: families who rely on its handouts
Thanks to Leo Shane III of Military Times for spending a lot of time talking to us and to wounded warriors and their families about how much the benefit from WWP. Here are a couple of excerpts.
While most of the group's damage control has happened behind the scenes, the group's strongest public advocate has been Nardizzi, who spent eight years running Wounded Warrior Project before his abrupt dismissal.
“If a warrior is reaching out to get help, there is no better place for them to get help than Wounded Warrior Project,” he said. “My personal situation is irrelevant. ... And I’d refer donors there too. If you are a donor, and you really want to make an impact in a wounded warrior’s life, there’s no better place you could put your dollar.”
