That is not some perceived imagined slight, WWP has stated that as a fact.
Via their director of public relations Leslie Coleman, the Wounded Warrior Project staked their position with regards to the 2nd Amendment thus after refusing to go on the Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk national radio show: “While we appreciate the interest in having a WWP representative on your show on Veterans Day we are not able to participate in interviews or activities with media/organizations that are related to firearms.” Every since then I have told believers in the 2nd Amendment to take their donations elsewhere.
I’m not just talking about financial assistance; I’m talking about help, period.” “In the beginning, with Wounded Warrior, it started as a small organization and evolved into a beast.
It’s become so large and such a massive money-maker…the organization cares about nothing more than raising money and “keeping up an appearance” for the public with superficial displays like wounded warrior parking spots at the Walmart.” Ken Davis, a veteran from Arizona says that he is considered an “alumni” of the WWP even though he doesn’t want to be associated with the organization and that the WWP uses him to bolster their numbers fraudulantly.
He questions the WWP: “I receive more marketing stuff from them, [and see more of that] than the money they’ve put into the community here in Arizona. Never once did I get the feeling that it’s about veterans.” Speaking of how the WWP spends its money, how does that break down?
Only 48 to 58 cents of every dollar actually makes its way to wounded veterans and as you read above, that could be spent on trivial nonsense orchestrated to bolster the WWP and not necessarily help actual veterans who are in need.
But now, I have discovered that on top of being against the 2nd Amendment, the Wounded Warrior Project is a legal scam in which the vast chunk of donations made to them go to executive salaries and lavish parties and the veterans they claim to help, by and large, are given trivial trinkets and used as fodder for photo ops.
During an interview with the Daily Beast, a double amputee veteran of the Iraq war spoke candidly: “They’re more worried about putting their label on everything than getting down to brass tacks.
During this Christmas and New Year’s season the gift of charity swells in the hearts of many.And who better to benefit from that charity than those who have literally given life and limb for the freedom and liberty we possess today than the veterans who stood tall when their nation called on them?
