A retired Army major general has been named interim chief operating officer for the Wounded Warrior Project after the veterans organization fired its two top officers following a scandal over the nonprofit’s alleged lavish spending.

Gen. Charlie Fletcher, who served on the WWP’s advisory council, will step in as interim COO on April 11, the group’s charity board of directors said in a statement Monday.

Gen. Fletcher served more that 30 years in military aviation and is a logistics senior mentor at NATO, Stars and Stripes reported.
