Wisconsin veterans group restructuring after president is accused of military fraud

Posted:
WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -

The Wausau-based veterans group Souls of Honor is restructuring, following fraud accusations of its former president Ronald Worthey. 

According to watchdog group Guardians of the Green Beret, Worthey lied about serving in Vietnam, having a Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.

However, military records show he served stateside and didn't receive those awards. 

The vice president of Souls of Honor said he is working on forming a new group with a similar mission. He wants to reassure veterans in the community that although the Souls of Honor won't exist in the same capacity it once did, the group will still be there to support Wisconsin veterans. 

Worthey could not be reached for comment Monday.
