I think there is a WWP because the VA and American people are too cheap to adequately take care of veterans. I think vets who are in wheelchairs and double amputees etc. should get houses where they can live independently even if it costs a million bucks. They should get all the care they need and screw the price. They have given it all, so they should get it all.

I was really put off by the ads nearly identical to those pleading for starving, third world children.

I'd hope the nation would feel the same and inquire as to why a WW project has to exist.

I'm not dissing the organization and all the good they do, just saying there shouldn't be a need for them.

I will keep donating to WWP as long as the need exists and right now a lot of veterans and their families need WWP to do the things our government has failed to do for them. I totally agree with John999's comments.

I agree with all you guys. If the VA and Govt did what they promised when they had us Join and Go to War, then as you guys stated there would be no need for WWP. I have Tricare for Life, SSDI Insurance and VA 100% care, yet when I fell a few months ago due to my SC L Knee, I broke 5 ribs and tore my Pectoral Muscle. So I had to go to Civilian Emergency Room down the Street from a my VA that did not have an Emergency Room. What happens next, a few weeks ago I get a bill for $454, WTH! As an Old Man in my Town told my Once, what is the point of a Hand Shake between two Men, if it means nothing in the End!

I believe that when the WWP started out several years ago, it was a

good program that was needed.

I believe that NOW the WWP is just out for money with lots of it

going to the employees in paychecks.

You hit on the head Carlie. Every new program the Govt comes up with, and creates all these Radio Jingles and TV Ads, sounds, looks and smells good at first. Then the Cows Step, Trample and Poop all over it over time!

Carlie,

After reading your comments I checked out WWP on the Charity Navigator website. As usual, you are right. Only 57.9 % of WWP funds are spent on the programs and services it delivers. The CEO of WWP has an annual salary of $311,538. To say I am disappointed would be an understatement. There are several other charities listed on Charity Navigator that spend over 90% of their revenue on similar programs and services for veterans and their families. In the future, I will checkout the charity before I donate.

Thanks.

Kinda like the IRS..........YOU gotta buy the software and do your own taxes or hire someone...........Then the IRS gets to grade you on how well you did it. Hell, they are taking your money......seems like they would do your taxes.

better yet, a point-of-purchase tax and get rid of the whole bunch. Same for the Va.

I definitely know the crap the IRS puts us thru. I filed my taxes last month and had to pay $806, so I mailed the check in. Then this week I get another bill from IRS, saying that I owe them $186 interest on the $806, WTH. I did not want any issues in the future with the IRS, so I mailed that check in today. My wife is so pissed, and she is waiting for another bill to arrive. There is always a catch when it comes to the Govt.

I did not mean to change the subject. They can afford to fight a war in Afghanistan and bomb Iraq. They can also hire 300,000 employees to insure that your denials are pristine and up-to-date.

Sadly they cannot afford to compensate Veterans.

They will however, kill you for free with frustration, waiting lists and backlogs.

Proof: the 400 pound Gorilla in the room is THE MERE EXISTENCE OF THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT.

I contacted the WWP, they told me I wasn't elegable because my disability was from the Vietnam war. I think they need to change their name.

They should state in their commercials that Vietnam veterans are not eligible. Sounds like they only provide assistance to post 9/11 veterans.

When the money flows greed takes over. I know that the wounded warrior project does good work. I have no problems that they limit who they can help. I belonged to a DAV Chapter and was elected Adjutant where I discovered that the income of about 300,000 a year was mostly spent on members going to DAV meetings. In Las Vegas, New orleans and other travel destinations.

I quit and joined a local VVA where most of their money and volunteer work went to helping Veterans. I am sure it could be the opposite somewhere else.

Today in the review and fixing the VA I think that Service officers and their training should be part of the review. They shoudl be tested and certified.
