    I have heard similar allegations from other sources, I have no idea personally, I do know that non profit charities reports must be made available on demand to any interested party, most charities spend money on internal matters and expenses.

    A CEO of Goodwill charities came under fire for drawing in excess of $ 800,000 U.S. per anum salary.

    If you or anyone wants to support a veterans charity I whole heartedly suggest Disabled American Veterans, aka the DAV or the VFW. Especially given the recent disheartening news about the Wounded Warrior Project. As a USAF Vietnam era veteran I support the DAV and the VFW. Given their charitable track record now and even prior to their current problems I would never support the 'WWP'.

    Apr 11, 2016 — Two men ousted from top executive positions at Wounded Warrior Project say their leadership upheld the intent of donors who contributed millions to one of the nation's largest veteran support groups. Al Giordano and Steve Nardizzi want the Jacksonville-based charity's board of directors to publicly release the results of an independent review of its records.
