Kudos to the DoD for doing this. The military historically has been the driver for advances in surgery. This will not only benefit Katie, but the knowledge gained from this will also benefit many wounded soldiers in the future.

I'm not proud to admit my initial thought was not how difficult life must be for her but rather how deformed her face was.
But then I was proud that my (our) inherent human intelligence and morality was able to put that thought aside and wonder what I could do to help her.

I think had this been my own situation I'd rather have some kind of plastic prosthetic than someone else's face and a lifetime of rejection treatment. I just don't think my psychology could handle the physical and emotional pain of accepting another face. That said, I know little about living with the alternative that she was dealing with.
