The board of the Wounded Warriors Project, a national veterans advocacy group under criticism for its handling of donations and spending, ousted two top executives following an independent review of its finances.

The group, based in Jacksonville, Fla., has been challenged over how it spends more than $800 million raised in donations over the past four years. CBS News and The New York Times found the organization spent 40% to 50% on overhead while other veterans' charities spend 10% to 15%.

Guess these two guys are going to have to find a new group to pretend to care about.

In a country that says they love veterans so much, we sure treat the like shit
Always have. Watch the movie, The Best Years Of Our Lives, to get an idea what the WW2 guys had to deal with when they got back home.

No coincidentally, I've started to notice a lot more WW ads on TV lately.

I think the scandals are seeing their donations dry up and they're trying to recoup the losses.

Wounded on Omaha Beach,second wave. We bought our first home with the GI bill. Veterans had training. But they also moved to states that were booming with jobs. They created the Middle Class by back breaking work. That has been slowly destroyed over the years. Succeeding generations became fat and happy. They brought what we have today on themselves. But others are suffering because of them.
