The following is an op-ed written by the United States of America, the father of GWOT, a 15-year-old teenager. Wow, can you believe it? It's already been 15 years since that fateful day in September when GWOT came screaming into this world. It was just amazing how fast he went from crawling in stateside training to walking through Afghanistan to running right through Iraq, blasting everything in sight. One day you're watching your little boy camping in Boy Scouts and the next you're seeing him walking down MSR Tampa with a graduation kevlar cap on.
