Lieutenant General (Retired) Mike Linnington is a pretty incredible person. After a tremendous 35 year long career in the Army, he transitioned to the nonprofit sector and took the helm at the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), which was the subject of some public controversy at the time (early 2016). His leadership has been critical, and WWP is really serving Veterans and military families in a big way.
In this episode we discuss:
• His career in the military, and service in his family
• Transition from a 35 year military career to the nonprofit world
• What he found when he showed up to WWP, post controversy
• The changes they’ve made, and what WWP is up to now
