>>> Two years ago, Army Pvt. Shamika Burrage ...
There is too much emphasis on full name and rank. Right off the bat, at the start of the article. There is a certain kind of  "newsboy rank" about this article that really stinks. Chinese author? U.S. Army private, emphasis on the Pvt.?

>>>first of its kind” in the Army
Nope. It's been done before.

>>>The total ear reconstruction involved doctors carving a new ear out of cartilage harvested from Burrage’s ribs, the statement said. The ear was then placed under her forearm skin to let it grow. ¶The procedure is one of the most complicated ear constructions in the United States, according to an ABC News report, and allows for the formation of new blood vessels in the cartilage.
The whole thing is a lot more complicated than it needs to be, and it doesn't need to take two years, either. There is something really, really sick about how these doctors go about their business.

You know what the real problem about this is?

This is from the Holy Bible, Luke 22, the story of the betrayal of Jesus. Someone associated with the doc thought he was Saint Peter and cut off that girl's ear unnecessarily, and now the doc thinks he's Jesus Himself since he can touch it and make it all better.

47And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. 48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? 49When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him. 52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves? 53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
