Ignorant, yes. Appalling- I disagree. Part of me likes that people my age (36) and younger have no real concept of what sacrifices were made. It means that we haven't had to repeat the tragedy of war. In the broad scope of teaching students social studies, war is not something that you can spend a ton of time on. Once again- isn't that a good thing? I see both sides and I tend to flip flop.
