Wounded Warrior Project Applauds VA Accountability Executive Order

WASHINGTON, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) joined other veterans service organizations to support an executive order that will strengthen the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). President Donald Trump signed the order to allow VA to hold employees accountable.

"The overwhelming majority of VA employees serve our veterans honorably, and we applaud their service and commitment to our veterans and their families. There are, however, instances where employees have been negligent in their duties," said WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. "While VA needs authority to hold employees at every level accountable, we are also encouraged by the VA secretary's commitment to developing values-based leaders who go the extra mile in service to veterans and their families. Wounded Warrior Project is committed to working with VA and other veterans service organizations to ensure these changes occur." 

President Trump signed the executive order at VA headquarters on Vermont Avenue late this afternoon. 

WWP knows firsthand about the growing needs of today's generation of wounded veterans and all veterans around the nation. In the past ten years, WWP has invested nearly $1 billion in free programs and services. Together, with our partners, WWP has reached 3.5 million warriors, families and caregivers. More than 100,000 warriors are registered with WWP.
