This story is about the life of an American Negro by the name of Howard Carter Ferebee. He was my uncle. As far as I know the official account of his demise is accurate. When his ship, the USS Luchenbach was torpedoed by a German U boat in the North Atlantic on its way to Europe, there were no known survivors.
