Lenny and the One-Eyed Monster


Abstract:
Leonard Day was a Morehead City native who enlisted with the U.S. Navy on April 9, 1917. Assigned to the USS CYCLOPS, Day worked as a 1st class fireman aboard the vessel. In February, 1918, CYCLOPS was travelling from Brazil to Virginia when it vanished off the coast. Several other North Carolinians were onboard with Day. The vessel and crew were declared missing in June, 1918 and are considered “killed in accident.”
