As Memorial Day Draws Near, Don't Let The Greatest Casualty Be..

Wounded Warrior Project I am a proud member of the Advance Guard with the Wounded Warrior Project.  

 

As the Wounded Warrior Project website states"The Greatest Casualty Is Being Forgotten".  Their mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors.  Please remember to honor and thank all of those that have served and those currently serving.  Without these heroes, and their sacrifices to our great nation, America would be a very different country.

Honor all of our Heroes - make every day Memorial day by never forgetting their service.

Americans donate hundreds of millions of dollars each year to the charity, expecting their money will help some of the 52,000 wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

But CBS News found Wounded Warrior Project spends 40 to 50 percent on overhead, including extravagant parties. Other veterans charities have overhead costs of 10 to 15 percent.

The executives were recently fired.

It's much more than a long weekend and family cookouts! Sad that people need to be reminded.

There was a problem and it is being rectified Roy Kelley and there is some question as to the percentages.  I did not find any Veterans charities that only had 10 or 15 percent overhead, but that is definitely a great goal to be at.

The CBS report, which was published in January, found that the non-profit, which purports to help veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, spent as little as 54% of donations on their actual charity work. The rest went to overhead: according to the report, spending on conferences and meetings skyrocketed from $1.7 million in 2010—the year after Nardizzi became CEO—to $26 million in 2014.

On Thursday night, the charity released a statement arguing that spending was far more controlled than media reports claimed. The statement asserted that 80% of donations go toward programming, but it conceded that “some policies, procedures, and controls at WWP have not kept pace with the organization’s rapid growth.”

I agree, it is sad that so many forget what the holiday is about Sharon Tara

Lisa

I agree that we never should forget the price that our veterans pay to keep us free and safe.

Good luck and success.
