Project Expects Layoffs as Part of Restructuring

The new chief executive of the Wounded Warrior Project, one of the nation’s largest veterans charities, said he anticipates laying off an undisclosed number of employees and cutting the amount of financing it provides smaller veterans groups amid a restructuring that follows scrutiny of the nonprofit organization’s spending.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Linnington, who took over Wounded Warrior Project in July, said he is in the middle of an assessment that includes meeting with wounded warriors, donors and officials from other groups that help veterans.
