Leonard Day, of Morehead City in Carteret County, joined the US Navy on April 9, 1917, three days after Congress declared war on Germany. Harrington recounts his experiences and the ships he served on. On March 4, 1918, Fireman First Class Day and five other North Carolinians were numbered among 306 passengers and crewmen aboard the USS Cyclops which left Barbados bound for Baltimore. Between March 4 and March 13, the ship and everyone on board vanished in the infamous Bermuda Triangle. No trace has ever been found. Day was declared officially to have \"died\" on June 14, 1918.
