Earl "Curly" Lambeau, father of the Green Bay Packers, wrote this letter to his wife preceding his return home from the war: "My Dear Little Snucks, Now that the war is practically over you can expect me home almost any time. It may be days, weeks, or more, nobody can tell. I would cut 5 yrs. from my life to spend an evening with you. Ten of we football men were to leave for Camp Fremont, California on Dec. 1, but will not since peace is declared. We should of won Sat. as we outplayed Great Lakes. We were ahead 7-0 at the end of the half. If our team was in shape we could beat em bad. Eastern critics say we have the best team around. I suppose you got your information from Chicago papers, which were far from accurate. I will write that promised letter as soon as possible. P.S. (I won my N.P.) Anxious Love, Earl."
