IN THIS WAY, NEITHER THE DOCTOR NOR THE PATIENT KNOWS WHO IS RECEIVING AN ACTIVE DRUG.

ROY STEVENS: THAT'S RAY AND THIS IS ME. HE WAS HIT BY MACHINE GUN FIRE. Roy Stevens and his twin brother Ray were in separate landing craft. Roy almost drowned when his sank short of the beach. Plucked from the water and sent back to England, he did not reach Normandy for four days..... ROY STEVENS: I NOTICED THERE WAS WORKING IN A CEMETERY OVER THERE, AND I SEE THOSE LITTLE WHITE CROSSES THEY STARTED PUTTING UP. THE FIRST GRAVE I CAME TO...THE FIRST CROSS...WAS MY BROTHER'S THEY HAD HIS DOG TAGS UP ON THE CROSS AND A LITTLE PIECE OF MUD ON IT, AND I KICKED IT OFF. Back in Bedford....weeks went by before loved ones got the sad news by War Department telegram. LUCILLE BOGGESS: IT SEEMED LIKE JUST A DARK CLOUD HUNG OVER THE COMMUNITY FOR A LONG TIME. Lucille Boggess had two brothers in Company A....Bedford and Raymond. Both were killed.
IT WAS JUST SO TRAUMATIC I GUESS FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. I REMEMBER HEARING THE FATHERS OF THE OTHER MEN WHO DIED SAYING I NOT ONLY LOST MY SON BUT I LOST MY WIFE THAT DAY. BECAUSE A LOT OF WOMEN HAD A HARD TIME COPING WITH THE LOSS. The next 6th of June a memorial honoring the heroes of D-Day will be dedicated. Large in scope to match the courage of that day....it will be dedicated...appropriately...in Bedford....the little town which gave so much.

One of the newborn baby snow leopards at Mill Mountain Zoo died Saturday afternoon.
Zoo officials made the announcement yesterday.
They say it's possible the cub might have suffocated by the mother or perhaps had died from some other cause.
The remaining two cubs were examined and the veterinarian found them in good health.
