The SS Eagle being built in 1917 listed as a freighter. She was actually chartered to the U.S. Army late in 1917 for WW I service.

Then in mid 1918 she was named Peerless. Late in 1918 the U.S. Navy got interested and commissioned her. So for a short time period she was commissioned USS Peerless

So here is the documentation on her...and how she got damaged by the German U-boat U-513.
