Wounded Warrior Project's CEO, Steven Nardizzi, and COO, Al Giordano, were fired after criticisms from more than 40 employees about how it spends its more than $800 million raised in donations in the past four years.

The allegations include lavish spending by the charity at staff retreats, and other costs, at the expense of programs for veterans.

The charity's board of directors made the decision after meeting this afternoon in New York, Chip Reid reports. Sources tell CBS News the board has received preliminary results of a financial and policy audit, but there are indications that investigation will continue.

There are also discussions underway about retired senior military officials who are being considered to take over the helm of the organization, which has raised more than a billion dollars since its inception in 2003.
