The situation is very unfortunate but at least it looks like the board is doing something about it. Let’s hope they get their act together as they provide an obviously imperative service to our vets.

The two top executives of the Wounded Warrior Project — among the largest veterans charities in the country — were fired Thursday after an investigation into accusations of lavish spending on parties, hotel and travel, CBS News reported.

Wounded Warrior Project’s CEO, Steven Nardizzi, and COO, Al Giordano, were fired by the charity’s board amid criticisms about how it spends more than $800 million raised in donations in the past four years, CBS News reported.

The charity’s board of directors made their decision after a meeting in New York City, where they received preliminary results of a financial and policy audit, sources told CBS News.

The charity came under fire after an earlier CBS News investigation in January revealed large amounts of spending on administration, meetings, and travel.

  1. Ho ho, it sounds like their elite top people have taken to Animal Farm literally, where all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others (themselves). The cream who seems to rise to the top appear to have NO morals. Grab everything they can for themselves, and to hell with the warriors who have paid the price for their lavish lifestyles. Be ware, for what goes around comes around, and someday THEY, will be at the bottom of the crap heap! 🙁

    This is only right if they were using charitable funds for lavish spending .Especially knowing the hardships of all Vets . The same should apply to Govt spending . I attended a conference in DC on Poverty & Hunger . It was held at a vety expensive Hotel & the food & entertainment were honestly embarrassing . At the time I was a Dir. For our local WIC program . It was disgusting to participate knowing the plight of those people this conference was portending to serve . Especially since I basically learned or gained nothing of substance to take back !

    As an occasional donor to this charity, I’m pissed off that these despicable men, knowingly and with malice of forethought, used money meant to help veterans for their own entertainment. Shredding all solicitations from them until a full accounting.
