01/29/2016-10/01/2016: Low Concern Advisory

In accordance with our policy for removing CN Advisories, Charity Navigator removed the Low Concern CN Advisory for the Wounded Warrior Project on October 1, 2016 because the CN Advisory had been in place for more than six months (since January 2016) and because the organization provided public domain information, available in press releases and news reports below, addressing concerns raised in media investigations.
