JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Board of Directors today issued the following statement addressing recent concerns at the organization:

"For more than a decade, the Wounded Warrior Project ("WWP") has operated with the sole purpose of honoring and empowering the courageous men and women who have been injured in service of our country. As a Board, we volunteer our time in support of this mission because we profoundly believe in its lasting, positive impact on the 83,000 wounded warriors and over 15,000 family members that the organization serves. We want to thank the Wounded Warrior Project's donors, sponsors, employees and partners whose extraordinary generosity makes this possible.

The Board takes very seriously the concerns that have been raised in recent days and is in the process of retaining independent advisors to conduct a thorough financial and policy review of the concerns. We remain steadfast in our commitment to our warriors and supporters and will ensure that the organization is effectively fulfilling this important mission."
