In keeping with the terms of my consent decree with Wounded Warriors Project regarding the posts I put up that I have received from you readers as well as my own, I hereby publish the following:
The content that I, Gordon Alex Graham, authored and published in my own name and under the handle ASKNOD.COM regarding Wounded Warrior Project, Inc. and its programs, services, financial information, supporters, donors, business relationships, and business conduct is not substantiated by any factual information, and is false, misleading, and defamatory. I retract all such statements, including statements that Wounded Warrior Project is a legal scam and/or a fraudulent organization. The truth is that Wounded Warrior Project provides lifesaving services to warriors. It is accredited by the Veteran’s Administration to provide benefits assistance to veterans, and it does not receive government funds. The salary of its CEO – which is voted on by WWP’s independent, all-volunteer Board of Directors – is well within the range of salaries paid to similarly-sized nonprofit executives. I apologize to Wounded Warrior Project and acknowledge the publication of false, misleading, and defamatory content regarding Wounded Warrior Project was disrespectful and inappropriate. Furthermore, I apologize for the loss of donations I caused and continue to cause Wounded Warrior Project because of my publication of false, misleading, and defamatory statements. I am ashamed that, because of my actions, injured veterans may have chosen not to avail themselves of Wounded Warrior Project’s programs and services.
